After a week of really struggling to take anything decent I ended up taking six shots yesterday that I’ll put up over the next couple of weeks – various shots of some graffiti reasonably close by to where we live. Normally, graffiti in the North of England is of the “fuck off”, “daz luvs sharon”, or “I woz ere” variety, so I don’t often come across any that’s worth photographing. On this occasion though I found what seemed to be a partially demolished building – three walls, open to the sky – painted on both sides, … and some of it was really well done.
This shot is a close-up (not a crop ;-) of the one I’m going to put up tomorrow, and is a part of the tag of a larger piece of work. Incidentally, I suspect that there’s probably a word to describe an individual piece of graffiti … I just don’t know what it is ;-)
