Culture: Graffiti - Beauty Lies In The Eyes Of The Beholder

(Drivebycuriosity) - Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder (Plato). You could certainly say this of graffiti. Some call them beautiful, others see them just as filth, garbage and vandalism.

Anyway. Some of the ubiquitous images you can find almost everywhere are at last interesting. But that is a matter of opinion too.

WhenI am walking on the streets my eyes are always open for graffiti - and I take often picture. Some of the graffiti seem to have a hidden message, a cryptic memo from an alternative universe maybe. Some are mysterious, some show a bit elegance, others are more on the explosive side.

I like the dynamics of the spray lines, sometime they play with colors, other use various shades of black & grey.

Here are some tidbits of my collection.

Maybe you will enjoy it.
