Mario's Cork Walkabout

Following on from my last post, I'll continue in the admitedly rather narrow theme of "computer game characters running or walking across a wall" graffiti in Cork....

Today's piece is by Starman Super. It depicts Mario, a famous character seen in many Nintendo games like "Donkey Kong" and "Super Mario Brothers". I found and photographed this piece on Henry Street in July 2012.

Here is a link to Starman Super's own photo of this on Flickr, showing the entire piece before it was damaged by the elements:

Also, if you are into Mario, or at least into somewhat silly camera reviews, here's a link to Kai Wong's review of the luscious Fuji X-E1 camera on Digitalrev TV. It features a model running around Hong Kong dressed up as Mario. Enjoy!
