Fascinating. Striking. Powerful. Beautiful.
So now I need to know - what's the blue can on the right for?
Just one of life's little mysteries.
Great stuff! If only more graffiti artists actually had that sort of talent ...
So much that is wonderful in these photos! I used to dismiss graffiti. My feelings about is began to change in 1991 when I was in East Germany soon after the wall came down. There was a stretch of the wall that was covered in immensely inspiring and heart rending political graffiti. I've never felt the same way about it ever since.
Thanks for posting the photos! I'm particularly drawn to the seventh!
I took a few shots of the graffiti on the "East Side Gallery" in Berlin - definitely memorable.
Glad you liked them Neil. And congrats on the house purchase.
great stuff! thanks for sharing!
Incredible collection of graffiti. It interests me that it is so fragmented into words and random thoughts and bits of comments. Perhaps this is the art form of modern times.
I like your composition on the second pic. Some of this stuff completely blows my mind. It does every time.
I don´t like graffiti!! Here in Mexico people copy this behavior from overseas and disgusted me.
Oh dear. Can't please everybody.
I love quality graffiti art. Thanks for sharing these!
I love public art! These are great photos. Lots of vibrant color, great sense of the urban setting.
Glad you liked them, Mikie.
love it love it love it, thanks fro sharing!

Re: random commenter
You're very welcome.
Havnt seen you in LJ for a while, miss your photos :)
Hope you are well and busy.
I look forward to catching up with you!
Glad you're OK, I was thinking about you today because 100+ very fit young men in wetsuits are about to descend on Thurso for the O'Neill Cold Water Classic :o)
I sure do miss this blog.
Oh boy am I glad you're okay! *hugs* I was a little worried after realising that I haven't seen you around here for a while - even though I am not reading every day. Let alone writing... I hope all is well with you and Meirion and the pups!
are you okay? where have you been?
Some of them are absolutely amazing! Thanks for sharing!
I know you're on Twitter (which I don't really use) and have another blog (which I do read on occasion), but I sure do miss your beautiful image laden entries here. =)

I'm glad to read that you are OK and just busy. I miss you.
Yes, this. I was thinking about warmer temps and summer photos in your area which made me miss you something fierce!
