Hello cieldequimper - it's hit and miss. Sometimes it is, sometimes it isn't. This one isn't beautiful but I like it because it tones in with, rather than stands out from, the bricks.

Hi Luis. I can't read it at all! I've tried! I hope you too have a good weekend.

The graffiti matched the wall very well, both in colour and form.

A bit hard to read, though. Maybe you could sell it to Blogger for use as Word Verification :-)

Graffiti/street arts are always fun. This one shows it. Happy weekend. :)

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

I can't get enough graffiti.

Thanks for your comments. To your point, the photos tell very different stories.

Lucy, thank you for visiting and commenting on my blog. You shoot strong photos. I like the graffiti shot a great deal, and you aren't suppose to be able to read them.

Graffitists-they are often called "taggers" here in the US-can be quite artistic. I like the way this looks. It is hard to read, though!

Thanks for coming by; I remember playing Kim's Game, but I didn't recall the name. Google is a very useful tool!

Good title to go with this!

Toffeeapple said...

It is all very clever, I just wish I could read it!

Carver said...

I like the way the graffiti looks on the bricks. Good shot!

Hi Rune - that's a good idea! Perhaps this is where Google recruits for Captcha!

Hello Rizalenio - there is another bridge, not far away, which had very brightly coloured graffiti. I enjoyed them . . . until a couple of months ago, the council came and painted them all over with a 'brick' coloured paint. It may have been to protect the bricks from the elements - but the graffiti looked a lot nicer! (Especially because the bricks themselves were very attractive compared with the bland monochrome of the paint-over paint.)

Hi Woody - it's true. And seeing what different stories can be taken from the same scene, one is tempted to convert the saying 'the camera never lies' to 'the camera always does' which, I think, is nearer to the truth!

Hello Taken for Granted. I didn't realise one shouldn't be able to read graffiti. They are often so tantalising I don't think I will be able to stop myself trying!

Hello Dimple. It's difficult, isn't it? Some graffiti is a pleasure to look at, 'fits' the place. While others are less successful. If I painted a wall, or built a new one, I probably wouldn't be as keen on it being 'improved' as I am about seeing it on those for whom others are responsible.

Thanks, T. Becque. I think I remember you being amused by my titles before - saying precisely what is in the picture.

Hi Toffeeapple. Hoping you are beginning to feel a little more cheered.

Hello Carver. I wonder whether painting on brick rather than plain plaster is a special pleasure for grafitti artists.

I will not say anything about graffiti, but this shot is great!
