Graffiti is an art form I appreciate for many reasons. The artwork itself is often very bold and colorful; messages are sometimes profound or political in nature (occasionally bordering on anarchy). There is a certain vicarious thrill associated with the risks – both physical and legal – taken by the artists in the creation of their work.
Searching out and photographing graffiti can make for a fun and adventurous day (or night). For me there is a thrill in visiting abandoned buildings, old industrial parks and exploring underneath bridge abutments.
This subject lends itself to many photography tools: HDR, flash, light painting…..Have fun! Be safe!
The rules are pretty simple:
- Post one original photograph (Your Image) shot each week per theme posted on this blog to Google+, Facebook, or Flickr (or all three). Tag the photo #photochallenge.org or #photochallenge2016.
- The shot should be a new shot you took for the current weekly theme, not something from your back catalog or someone else’s image.
- The posted image should be a photograph, not a video.
- Don’t leave home without your camera. Participating in the 2016 PhotoChallenge is fun and easy.
