At the Austin Graffiti Wall

I am a fan of graffiti.  There, I said it.  I know lots of folks don’t like it and consider it ugly or a nuisance (or both) - and in some cases it is.  But many times, I find that it is beautiful.  I have seen some incredible stuff in my travels, and these folks are true artists.

There is an awesome spot here in Austin which is a graffiti wall - it’s open for graffiti artists to go crazy on, which I consider a great idea.  It gives them a place to artistically express themselves, without defacing someone else’s property (which is most people’s issue with graffiti, I assume).

I was there recently and fired away for a bit, taking home a LOT of photos.  So, here’s the first one - pretty cool huh?
