Color Carnival: Graffiti

Martha, over at Color Carnival has suggested I join in on her photography meme. Be sure to check out the many colorful images others have posted.

Today we made our first summer trip into San Antonio for business and pleasure.

For some reason I find most graffiti sort of pleasurable to look at--perhaps because it is usually very organic and taking up otherwise dead space. With this record-breaking heat wave upon us, blinding light, and crunchy yellow grass, this mural was a welcome surprise for the eyes, tucked into and brightening a little forgotten area of downtown.

It's beautifully done, almost like a piece of art.

It is beautiful. Philadelphia has a Mural Arts program which is 25 years old. The city has sponsored over 2500 murals to be painted throughout the city.

Graffiti is better than those street guys doing some dirty job on the walls. That's a very interesting abstract paintings. thanks for visiting my CC entry.
