Street Art In Panama City, Panama

More than 23 columns were decorated by voluntary graffiti artists from the Special District of San Miguelito in Panama City, Panama. The change to the urban area was dramatic. All the scattered garbage was also carefully collected. A long overdue responsibility of the district’s City Hall. Photo by ©Omar Upegui R.

All pictures were taken with my new Fujifilm X-30 mirrorless camera using the lengendary film simulation feature called Classic Chrome.  I’m very pleased with the performance of this photography tool.  Good Day.

  1. Morning Barbara,

    Littering and garbage dumps have been a problem in this country as far back as I can remember. It’s is so embedded, that I would say it’s become part of our culture. We must do better—a lot better—in this regards.

    I’m glad to see that the mayor of San Miguelito is leading by example.



  2. I’m glad to have a chance to see the painted columns in color. When you showed one in black and white (in the picture of the lady selling lottery tickets) it looked as though it would be vibrant and interesting — and so they are.

    1. Hi Linda,

      I was impressed on the high quality of the graffiti paintings accomplished by young artists from the Special District of San Miguelito.

      Bright colors were used as you can appreciate in the pictures.
