City Daily Photo Theme Day - Graffiti


Welcome to October! The first day of the month, City Daily Photo has a theme. Todays theme is "graffiti"

Stepping off the mountain for this one! I went in the opposite direction and headed down to Portland. On the back of most of the signs along popular Belmont Street, there are stickers and graffiti. The area is very well taken care of - the expressions are limited to these small collections on signs and in the many concert and event posters stapled to the power line poles.

Looks like you don't have any shortage of graffiti. There are some funny ones here.

I don't usually associate stickers with graffiti ... but I guess I need to broaden my horizons a bit -:)

Wow! It's rather polite how the graffiti is kept to the back of signs and power line poles. Pretty cool.

Happy Theme Day!

We have a 'sticker graffiti' subculture movement down here in Salem too. There is rumor that they intend to vandalize the capitol bldg with their stickers. Haven't seen it yet. Have a great weekend.

Graffiti: a world-wide assault on the eyes...

Great find! I never thought of it before, but now that you mention it, graffiti and stickers do go together. :)

Very clever entry on the theme!

It's interesting how the signage has been repurposed!

Now that's certainly a lot of different styles all together.

Great choice for the Theme Day picture. They made good use of the otherwise boring backside of the sign.
