    When I go for a walk, I often see some graffiti sprayed or painted on bridge pillars and on walls of old, abandoned buildings. Let's show the works of these unknown artists.

    Taken back in March with the E-P2 and you don't even want to know that the ISO was 1600...why, because I knew even less back then. This was taken with the Panny 20mm lens and I could not step back any farther...so here is the right side of the graffiti memorial just off Arthur Avenue in the Bronx, New York.

    Part of the Venice Beach "Art Walls" -- officially sanctioned graffiti area with signups. Panasonic GF1 with Canon FD 50mm f/1.4 lens, probably at 2.8.

    This is very interesting, many thanks for the link. I don't know who made that graffiti. Maybe a Russian, but it might be an Austrian, since "KOT" is a German word, too. On the other hand, there is no obvious reason for painting that word on the wall.

    Ahh, right, I forgot about German spelling it the same way. It's been a long time since I took German.
