This is another of the grafitti shots I took last week (I have two, maybe three left that I’ll put up at some point) and is the only one of all of them that displays an entire piece. What I like about all of these shots is the vibrancy of the colour, which is mostly a consequence of the artists using metallic paint for portions of their work. But what I like about this one is the grass and weeds at the bottom of the image. For the rest of the shots I focussed much more sharply on the work itself, this one contains a bit of the surrounding scene. And I guess that the reason I like it is to do with the contrast between the sharp industrial feel of the graffiti and the contrasting softness and delicacy of the foliage.
Alternatively, it may just be that the greenery provides a bit of balance ot the orange/red/yellow of this piece of work ;-)
