Red Test on black metal background with rusted clips where another notice used to be on a brick wall

Given that this photo isn't in focus either, it seems a good picture to post today. Fortunately the internet is forgiving and you're only likely to notice because I mention it. Either way it's a cheerful way to indicate a bleak mood.

I can only imagine how the person felt that stenciled that up there. Hope things improve soon...

Hello Pat. I've wondered if the 'We are Dismal' notice refers to something we don't know about . . like a play or something . . but I've not come across them elsewhere. And it must have been pre-prepared. It's a notice with intent.
These glimpses into other people's lives are odd. We can see there must be a reason but we don't know what it is or how much it matters.
I'm glad you commented because you are the person I associate most with graffiti - the graffiti you find in the desert are so much out of place you must have thought a lot about why people put them there - something about their inner selves as well as well as being annoyed that they messed up the rocks. And when I see your photographs, I'm always confronted by the challenge of distinguishing between the motives of ancient peoples who carved drawings and people who turn up with spray paint.
