This is another of my recent graffiti shots (I have one final image after this one) and I thought I’d put it up today as a) I much prefer posting recent stuff so don’t want to sit on these shots for too much longer, and b) until I can find a bit of time to actually go out and take something else I don’t have too many shots left anyway.

Of the five shots I think this one may well be my favourite – there’s something quite wonderful about the light in this shot. The day I took them it was overcast, but very bright, and the smooth flat light has given this shot an almost luminous feel. I would have expected that strong lighting would have worked better, but I suspect that the metallic paint photographs much better under a gentler light. Anyway, let me know what you think.

The contrast between the more subtle writing on the left and the writing on the right that really jumps out is interesting.

You choose an interesting point of view to take this shot, the corner.

What gets me are the blue swoosh on the left and the tail of the H on the right that fades into the unevenness of the brick, there's a lot more movement in this one than the others in this series. I saw a great graffiti'd delivery van yesterday -- phat lettering 'BACON' -- but would've had to stand in the middle of a busy intersection to get a shot...

So much color, so little space. Very interesting and captivating shot. The colors, the corner and the graffiti all comes together to make a great shot.
