I was going to say that's a nice looking Mackers! Well, it's still nice looking, whatever it is.

Oh dear! I'd recognize those golden arches anywhere! (And I fear they may be just about everywhere!)

Jack said...

Oh, no! Is nothing sacred?

Farmchick said...

I agree with Jack...the whole Mickey D's thing is just a bit much.

Randy said...

They will just advertise anywhere. Nice find.

You know, we have so many better other things to transport to other countries. I think that those signs mar the landscape! the building would be far more attractive without those signs!

VP said...

This is a juxtaposition: the ads are far from the building, on the other side of the street. You need to stretch yourself a bit to see them like this.
These panel are a railing of sort for the pedestrian zone and are available to any advertiser. There is much worse around than McDonald's logo...

Interesting what the eye sees or how it is seen. MB

Italy, the land of arches. The Golden Arches want a place too.

JM said...

They can ruin any setting, but in this case the composition is pretty cool.
