Rage Biker???

Rage Biker???

Vienna. Austria

My entry to this week's Transglobal Thursday Fun-Challenge "What is it?". What is it, that makes people want to write strange things everywhere? I have no explanation for that phenomenon. (In order not to cause misunderstandings, I am not against graffiti as a matter of priciple, graffities can be very artistic and provide colourful spots in cities which are all too often dominated by concrete-grey.)

other sizes: small medium large

Strange message. I remember a lot of graffitti in Vienna from my visit long ago.

Perhaps someone had just been listening to Paul McCartney and Elvis Costello's strange "Biker like an Icon".

Great find and interpretation to the challenge.

Good take on the challenge! Interesting question.

Strange. Nice shot, though.

An interesting question Ekhart. If you asked the person though you would probably get the answer "what's it to you?" i.e. they wouldn't tell you! Perhaps they wouldn't know why themselves - at least not to be able to explain.

Interesting and well done take on todays challenge
Wouldn't it be nice to find an easy answer to this type of behavior
David Royall07-Sep-2006 19:48
This is an interesting question.
Stangely, I think I understand their need to write on walls.
I think we all have the same urge... but we use digital cameras and PBase instead.

Lol this is great.

It's just a way to exist, in a society which denied them daily... When you are invisible, indesirable, when we talk about you like some dogs (see Werner), then, as all human, they want to said: I'm here even if you don't want it...
(nice image, btw)
(PS: there is also a challenge: to writte on the most improbable place... here it was easy!:)

Great shot and very interesting contribution to this weeks challenge. Well, I think, it´s a bit like dogs who have to mark their territory at all the trees around. v
