Harry Potter Inspired Street Art (PHOTOS)

The last movie in the Harry Potter franchise "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Pt.2" was released today, or rather, last night at midnight. For many, it means the end of an era. A generation of young people grew up with Harry and his friends and the release of the last installment of movies means they're saying goodbye.
