Prince Charles



This was seen on a wall on Park Street in Hartford.  I googled Prince Charles Burger King and found that the image is by someone called Dolk.  How it ended up on this wall is one of the mysteries of life that I didn't spend the time to unravel . . .

This post is linked to Monday Murals.

I rather call it a freedom... :D
Nice shot!

VP said...

Nice shot, the only thing I like in the poster is Burger King!

Sharon said...

Hmm...I can't really see Prince Charles eating a burger from Burger King.

JM said...

Very cool! :-) Great composition with the man passing by.

Don't like Buger King, but this is a nice mural!

Malyss said...

Oh, poor Charles !I eat some of the food he's producting in England , and it's very good!Nothing to do with burgerkings!

RedPat said...

Good catch, Jack!

Luis Gomez said...

Wonderful capture!

I think this is sort of humorous. Sort of not humorous. Prince Charles is not Prince Charming but I don't think he deserves to be mocked in such a way. Are you sure the image is not the responsibility of Dork?

Re your comment on Ocala: It's very hairy living here in central Florida!

Very nice catch Jack! Don't know about the real man, but Dork certainly captured Charles' reputation well.

I like that you caught the man turning his head to take a look at these posters. not sure I like it, and am sure I don't like BK.

Yep, some things don't need to be researched, that's for sure. ;)

in the netherlands burger king is better than mcdonalds, here its definitely the other way around.

Yes, Jack ! Sorry, i removed my earlier comment! It seems that everyone thinks of it as a joke and freedom of expression! Maybe it is! Have a nice weekend, Jack!

Michelle said...

I admit it gave me a good chuckle.

Randy said...

Interesting.

Leslie D. said...

That's pretty snarky! I sort of like ol Charles though..he has a good sense of humor.

How strange...

Mo said...

Very flattering actually

Kate said...

The intent of some murals is lost on me, and I would classify this one in that category.

How funny I'm sitting here watching Prince Charles doing a tribute to his mum, really enjoying it too. He's lovely.

SRQ said...

I like the passerby looking at the images. I would have done a couple take too looking at those rather odd pics of the prince.

Karl Demetz said...

Strange, but funny mural, Jack.
Place that person in the foreground is brilliant.

Oakland Daily Photo said...

Not exactly kind but pretty funny. He seems to have evolved over time into being a more sympathetic person. I imagine this is a partisan comment on how long he's had to wait to become king.

Hilarious- I am not a fan of either ;-)
