Nice. Three close portraits from a mural close to my home:

well, for just photography's sake, the first one is best for me. its a good angle, and have some diminishing lines from the fence.

the others document the graffiti well, maybe you could get a lil more creative and package them together somehow, with a tryptic, a collage, etc.

I think Graffiti that shows context is cool. Otherwise it turns into an art contest and essentially your judging the artist work. Nothing wrong with that, but that would not be considered street ''IMO''.

Fair critics! I slowly lost the concept of graffiti in context and was more and more involved in the art itself. Back to the drawing board!

The last pic shows a nice glazed brick facing which someone has vandalized with that graffiti. If that was my wall Id really be pissed at that mess. Is not even nice to look at. Now considering its behind a chainlink fence perhaps the building is abandoned. Every picture has a story. Whats the rest of this one?

Well, itís not a vandalized wall, but part of a municipal project that in fact enhanced the poverty of the original buildings. And yes, I try to tell stories, but not always succeed.
Interestingly, what you find here is vandalized graffiti, like these ones, at the end of the bridge:

No. That graffiti's about 6' behind the fence. It was my own view of the graffiti. This fence is close to the graffiti:



Anyway, I'm lacking context. That's important to me.

I have to ask, what's the difference between graffetti and a mural painted on a wall?
