  1. great tones, the yellow and blue on the post and also those bits of red on the poster are well handled and balance the picture. Impressed at how well a black wall has been captured.
    Taking a picture of someone elses art raised the question at clubs of who’s work this really is, but in this case the additions of post and poster have made it yours.

    • Thanks for the positive comment. I’m familiar with the pros & cons of taking photos of other people’s art, and I appreciate that just a straight photo of a painting is nothing more than a record of someone else’s work. I had that in mind when I took this photograph, and I wouldn’t post a photograph which was just a record shot. There was a fair bit of thought went into the composition of this shot, and I was very pleased with the result. Of course this is a ‘social document’ too. There are just a few streets in Camden where this incredible graffiti proliferates, and the whole area will shortly be demolished – and all of the art will be gone for good. It is in keeping with the ephemeral nature of street art, but all the same it will be a shame to see it disappear.

      • that is a shame, we have some great pieces of art near where I work (I’ll post later) and I’d be disappointed if it was to go, I usually look at it as I ride past instead of where I’m riding.

  2. A veritable feast of blacks. The recess in the wall gives some additional vertcals which add to the interest.
    We just did a bit of a Banksy walk in Bristol and the guide leaflet warns that due to the transient nature of street art they may not be there. On the walk around I decided that if I wanted to go into business in Bristol then spray paint home delivery and Buddhist body piercings would be two good ideas.
