Just yesterday, thanks to my manager at work pointing me in the right direction, I discovered some graffiti I actually liked.
It's bright and bold and doesn't look out of place. It adorns the skate park. I recall there was a graffiti painting competition at the park some years ago, maybe that was when the park opened and every inch of the complex is now covered with either graffiti or tagging. I wonder how the graffiti artists feel about the tagging.
But there was very little tagging along this wall.
The council has provided public toilets and adorned them so they blend in with the park.
The other graffiti I found a week or so ago when I was in Taranaki seemed to me to be just wrong.
I haven't been able to find out anything about the history of this old concrete building. It sat at the bottom of a cliff with an old road down to it and a derelict slipway for launching boats. I'll be back in Taranaki at the end of the month and will make enquiries.
I like how the old wall divides the beautiful from the ugly in this shot.
That was another topic where I thought "Oh crumbs" when I saw it. I didn't think "Oh crumbs", that's just me being polite. But you get the idea. It turned out to be quite fun. I think there will be some great images this week. Just pop over here to see them.
