    As I was driving home from classes today I took a different route home because I don't like driving on the highway when it rains, even though I own a Volvo:cool:. Good thing I did that because I found all this graffiti on a couple of walls and could not pass up the opportunity to capture such colorful shots. The more I walked around, the more graffiti I found. This definately made my day after finding out I bombed a very difficult pharmacotherapeutics exam. I am so glad this hobby can keep me sane in tough times....enjoy.

    P.S. This is why I'm glad I carry my X100 everywhere I go.

    Great colours and details, although the lines of the brickwork can be unforgiving if you are not dead square with the wall and you're trying to line up your horizontals and verticals with the frame edges..

    Nice, very nice. Take more detours...

    Gives more impetus to the "Is graffiti art?" debate.

    Thank goodness for taking a different way home, eh? I love your first - nothing extra needed! :bravo-009:
     
  8. Looks like the local kids have been busy. Wonder if there is any spray paint left at the local store.

    Graffiti is what it is. Here in Philly we have one of the most popular programs in the world. I used to do many of the projects recording the artist, works etc.
    I learned that there is...Graffiti, Murals and Wall Art.
    All are similar but the intent is different and usually the artist also.
    Graffiti is like music, it's shows what people are thinking about.
    Nice set...
