March Sun
illuminates graffiti behind bars
How did those Schmierfinken
manage to scribble behind the grilles?

  1. irgendwo im Siebten und Achten - Somewhere in the 7th and 8th District.
    All pictures were shot with my 50mm lens.

  2. I would wonder too how the graffiti came indoors. Maybe the artist was invited in. Ahhh, March - I am so happy it is here.

  3. Lights and shadows, and peeling paint. Life.

  4. There's am odd beauty to the nakedness of the freed side of this building in the first shot. I think I prefer it to any, fantastic shot, just fantastic M.

  5. Merisi, I just had to share (in case you haven't been by my blog yet)...

    In celebration of the 70th anniversary of the movie Casablanca, it is being shown ON THE BIG SCREEN once more! All over the USA!!! One night only: March 21, 2012.

    Visit my blog for a link to a list of participating theaters.

    I'm so excited, I'm telling everybody!!!

  6. Marilyn,
    however they did it, it must have been a major effort.

    Charles Gramlich,
    beautifully said, thank you!

    I feel the same about that exposed firewall, looks very vulnerable.

    oh, that is such a wonderful way to celebrate, thank you! :)


Thank you for taking the time to leave a note.
