Thought for the day

Melbourne must be graffiti capital of the world!  This amazing art form is everywhere and we have been wandering the streets and back lanes, seeking it out - which isn't difficult!  Mr Gaucho has taken hundreds of photos of the enormous murals which stretch out along the back walls of so many buildings here.  Some of the alleys are distinctly smelly and dirty but you just have to go for it if you want to find some of the good stuff.

While I certainly admire the ability of the graffiti artist I find the majority of the work to be quite dark and threatening in many ways.  I have tended to photograph some of the more beautiful aspects of the work we have seen.  In this post, though, I thought I would start with some of the more thoughtful graffiti I have seen.
