The Magic of the Cities.

Zen promotes the rediscovery of the obvious, which is so often lost in its familiarity and simplicity. It sees the miraculous in the common and magic in our everyday surroundings. When we are not rushed, and our minds are unclouded by conceptualizations, a veil will sometimes drop, introducing the viewer to a world unseen since childhood. ~ John Greer

October Theme Day: Graffiti

"Graffiti is one of the few tools you have if you have almost nothing.
And even if you don't come up with a picture to cure world poverty you can
make someone smile while they're having a piss."

It's a very frustrated feeling you get when the only people with good photos of your work are the police department."

Ciao Carraol, graffiti are beautiful, some writers, however, should have respect for classical art and do not disfigure the facades of ancient buildings, they must have the courage to ask the appropriate spaces to express their wonderful art!
Respect with respect!

Stunning photos, with those deep, deep blues. And the quote is perfect!

VERY appropriate quotes for theme day, and you presented them so artfully!

Lowell said...

Sorry, Banksy, but you're not an artist, you're a destroyer of property with your scribblings.

Great theme day post, my friend. But I have no use for graffiti or taggers who think they have the right to screw up other people's property.

Hope you have a great weekend!

I love Banksy's quote but he's more than a graffiti artist, he's a true street artist. Great pics as always Carraol

I love taking pictures of doors and Banksy. This door is one of the most unusual I have seen and Banksy is an artist who chooses his spot carefully not like all the other graffitists.
