Graffiti

I'm not always a great fan of graffiti but I thought this was rather good.



Couldn't quite decide how to do the perspective,always looked wrong

Taken on my walk in the East End the other day.

Thanks Nick for the comment in the gallery.

Re: Graffiti

That's a nice looking work of art, though I guess the owner of the propery that makes up the 'canvas' may not be so agreable!

I wonder if there was any way to show the work more in context with its surroundings?

If I'd taken one step further back I'd have been in the canal.

Now that would have made a VERY interesting perspective

Erm ... aren't you the proud owner of a 7-14 ?

Do I sense slacking going on here and not lugging around every piece of kit you own !

Nice picture of the nice picture - Why do som oiks get thousans for dirty beds etc whilst these guys go largely unrecognised ?

Regards
Andy

Re: Graffiti

Hi Andy
I really got a chuckle out of your retort....one step back etc......back in the good old days of the 1950s when I belonged to a camera club we would have competitions and the judge would be some well known figure in the photographic field in Toronto and that was the one remark that we all got a chuckle .... if you were to take one step back and crouch down you would get a better perspective ..... and of course we all new that your remark was the chuckle maker!! That is the problem when we invite critique........."one step back"!

By the way, I really like this image!
