Street Eye

It's been some time since my last post and the updates will probably be less frequent now that Law School has started up again (and since I'm still setting up my new website).
I took this shot while walking through Philadelphia. Near Chestnut street and 11th there was this old abandoned parking garage that was falling apart and completely covered in graffiti. I was drawn to how the face seems to peer out from the wall and how so many layers of paint and dirt have covered a once clean wall.

Hey, Ahamed! So sorry for the very late comment here! When I first saw this a while back, I really loved it...and still do! It's very striking. I like how it says: No one said you had to play fair. It looks like a ton of people have put up their own names/signs. the black contrasts well with the dark pink, white and purplish blue colors.

Wishing you a lot of good luck with school and your upcoming website!

Take care!
