I’ve come up with an original idea for a meme. It was inspired by this photo on Cold Feet – Longing Heart:
Grant calls it, “Garage Peter Pan”. He comments:
Since coming to Toronto, I have found amazing works of graffiti art. … Some beautify abandoned buildings; others beautify garage doors.
The picture accompanying this blog was taken by me in our neighbourhood and it is just one of several pieces that I have photographed and put on my flickr site. … Some of these pieces of street art, as I call it, make our alleyways art exhibits and they deserve to be appreciated and seen.
I agree! In that spirit, I’d like to celebrate the graffiti art found in my city — and yours! Here are some samples I photographed in Ottawa, in the vicinity of Lebreton Flats.
Better a living draft dodger than a dead soldier:
More … I need more!
Actually three pictures that I mashed together using the Paint.net program. All three are painted on the same wall.
Whence / whither / why?
Compressed work week
There’s graffiti in every city on the planet; so far we’ve only touched on Toronto and Ottawa. I’m inviting you to post photos of the graffiti in your city, so we can turn this into an international celebration of urban street art.
I tag Carolyn, Jamie, Juggling Mother, and Oxymandias. (Though I don’t know whether some of you ever post photos.) But if anyone else wants to join in, please do! Let me know if you post photos and I’ll link to you.
