Graffiti

Thought this was a bit more creative than what one generally sees as graffiti. The picture on the left is of a figure sitting holding up a bottle. Very graceful, I thought. The one on the right looks to be a clocked figure - but I am not sure if the hands are clasped in prayer and the lines are formed by the sleeves of the garment or the hands are clasping a dagger?



Can you tell?

clasped in some sort of anguished and rather spooky prayer, i would have thought :o)

I guess the hands are grasping a dagger.
Thank´s for your comment.
Would love to get your visit on my new solo project.

I think in agonizing prayer too - unique graffiti Isadora

I see the one on the right as praying for relief from a hangover after drinking and partying too much ;-)

Very different... more traditionally artistic.

Lara said...

yeah, is it a ninja or a person in prayer? looks like ninja to me... (too many movies). have a great Friday!

This is what happens: The guy on the right is praying to the gods: Oh, please, make this drunken fool stop singing! The guy can't carry a tune!

(Well, actually, that's the PG version...)

These look like they were drawn with a chalk. I can't say I've ever seen those on a building. The drawing on the left looks like a guy who has been relaxing and drinking too much while the guy on the right looks like a masked man wearing a coat & tie, not holding a dagger. Funny how different people see different things.

Well the hands are clasped together but one eye remains open. And it reminds me of a ninja also. Suppose he is saying grace before starting his drunken weekend?

What an interesting find!

Alok said...

I liked the contrast ... clueless really ... but if I have to think hard (which I seldom do :)) he is holding a dragger

Though I am not sure...I'd like to think the sketch on the right has his/her hands folded in prayer...Hope springs eternal...It is thought provoking!

I like the graffiti on the left. Normally, I'm not a fan of graffiti but this one looks good.

wow, cool...I think he is meditating.

the white colour graffiti matches the whole gray and white scheme of the building!

Thank you all for visiting and leaving your very original comments.

Glad that you've appreciated how different this was - just as it struck me as I walked along. Sometimes I wonder how I ever lived without a camera in my hand as I am so visual. :)

Fenix :) I love your GP version would you whisper the x rated?

How sweet, unusual the drink balancer, and I think the one on the right is deliberate, they are clever!

Keep us guessing.

Love your photography, thankyou!

I never leave the house either, (without my humble camera).

There is always something....
