WHO ARE MEG AND ESSER, ANYWAY?

While I am certainly no fan of graffiti, there is something about this otherwise nondescript side of a building. It is located in a rather unsavory part of town. Maybe it's the bars on the windows that give it away. I usually go exploring in my Yugo in pursuit of photos for this blog. Occasionally that endeavor involves the other side of the tracks. Neither rain, nor sleet, or the countless people that chased me, shall deter me from my chosen task. Perhaps next week, we will focus on murals in a better part of town. Enjoy your weekend.

  1. I go, you go, we go - for the only surviving Yugo in the U.S.
    hee hee
    How have you managed to keep it from self-immolating? One of the things the Yugos did best was their very accurate imitation of Buddhist monks...

    Oh.

    «Louis» gets it now. The Yugo is your version of the Vachemobile.

    Why don't we see if we can trade our Yugo and Vachemobile for one of Chuck Pefley's Vespas?
    ;-)

  3. I agree that jazzed-up buildings like this are fun. Sometimes I've even been tempted....:)

    I will disregard your Yugo remark, since the car is alive and well here! :(

  4. At least you were in the colorful side of the unsavory part of town.

  5. Looks nice and colorful, I would say that it brightens the building.

  6. I love it. I think of graffitti as art for all.

  7. The only guys who chased me here were the Carabinieri. They canvassed the neighborhood of Ardenza searching for a guy taking pictures of villas, obviously casing targets.
    An eager old lady alerted them...

  11. Those look like skater tags, but they are actually quite beautiful.

  12. Yugo huh? I think if someone is chasing you by foot they may catch you.

    Nice graffiti.

  13. I wonder if VP will be able to post in the coming months if he gets chased by cops like that all the time.

    Now I may not be a graffiti fan at all, I actually think this is quite nice.

  14. It certainly is colorful--sort of abstract art!!! Cool.

  15. Yes, I can see you now, chugging along in your Yugo, camera in lap, watching your back, snapping on the run! You are such a brave man!

    And all to take a photo of an old building with bars on the window and covered with graffiti!

    What a guy!

    Heh, heh!

  19. Now, B, you gotta be safe when you're hunting your next shot, don't be suicidal! BE CAREFUL!

  20. It seems to be a "thing" now - graffitify your own building with a mural and the taggers don't tag it (maybe). I saw one done up somewhat like this in an otherwise-Medieval-to-Victorian town in England last week (Banbury).

  21. In the enlarge mode, the quality of this mural is more evident, the textures and detail are great. Its a pity this kind of works remain anonymous and misunderstood. Thanks a lot for your most kind visits and have a wonderful weekend!

  22. Colourful graffiti on bland city walls can be quite attractive...as I think this is.

  23. Graffiti makes for some great daily photos, though!

  24. I like it! It's vibrant and bright!

  25. That reminds me of certain parts of California.

  26. Truly eye-catching! Have a great weekend too.

  27. I rather like it myself. We only got rain in Boston. With some flurries. No accumulation of snow.
