Hi everyone! My name is Camila and I blog over at The Things I Am Crazy For, which mainly focuses on my travels and expat life. I’m so happy to be taking over Clem and Marcella’s blog today and hope my photography can come just a little close to their amazing photos!

I’ve travelled multiple times to Chile – to visit family – and today I wanted to share some of my photography of the street art I found in Chile. In Canada, street art is not really a big thing – or perhaps I have not noticed – but I definitely noticed it while I was in Chile. Two of my favourite places to visit were Valdivia and Valparaiso and they both had some nice art, which added so much character to the sometimes crumbling walls.

I was staying near Temuco in the Araucania region in the south of Chile. One weekend we headed down to Valdivia to visit my cousin and his family. After a big lunch, like only Chileans can make, we headed out to the riverside market and me and my cousin’s daughter bought some nice necklaces. Finally we made it by the water. So beautiful! These were two particular graffitis that I liked. Please excuse my presence in both pictures, pre-blog me always wanted to get involved in the photos 😉

A few weeks later, my grandmother and I headed north to Valparaiso to celebrate the New Year’s. I went walking around the town with my cousins for the days before and after the most important midnight of the year, and I was so surprised to find all these amazing graffiti paintings on the many walls of the town. They really added pops of colour amidst the maze-like streets of the city!
