Desaturated to let the art shine thru.

This is still a work in progress. A few months down the road, i saw the artist workin on it. A rare glimpse - we ususally forget really people draw them. Graffiti arent just there or appear overnight.

Stare down

Nice series… Tones are making a sad mood.

@Calusarus: yup, now tt u've mentioned it, it is a darker, moodier mood..perhaps the subjects are more pouty & pensive too

Great photo Emily...have you come across the graffiti art of Banksy yet?

25 Oct 2008 10:50pm

@Ian Bramham: i have! ^__^ on ffffound i believe. if i'm not wrong, he was recently photographed while completing a work (double yellow lines extended up a wall to become a flower?). not sure =)

@Craig: cool, i couldnt have said it better! thanks

Howard F. from South Pasadena, Calif., United States

Wow, this is a big mural. Who painted this certainly got a lot of talent. Great find Emily.

@Howard F.: This was in an empty, rather large lot.

when post processing, i realised a logo on the right, the L with a pig like thing.. i got shots of his other works. more colourful and whimsical. perhaps another time =)..

I walk past murals like these most days on the way to work. For me they bring something to an otherwise drab grey wall littered with tags. Nicely caught, seems like Adelaide has a good scene for this kind of street art.

@Chris: true, murals are more meaningful than tags. i'll try post the other graffiti photos i have. yup, having a bad sense of direction, i stumble upon quite some number of street art =P

Simran from New Delhi, India

Andrew Gould from Sydney, Australia
