The Art of Graffiti

November 2006: After more than a year of not being there, I was passing the place by without any intention to take more shots. Why do I? I've already took as many as I could. I was so wrong. The walls have been re-done completely. The old painting were gone. Now they exist only in my gallery, nowhere else. But there were new ones, may be even better. And I spend again some time shooting them . So they are now being added to the gallery, so you can see more of that mysterious and great art of invisible painters.

May 2005: Living in Toronto for almost six years I was wondering why I do not see graffiti on the city walls. I was trying to look in many places around the city and could not find them. I really love these paintings. They are strange, funny, usually very professional, and so colorful. And colud not find anything, nada. One day I was heading toward Queen Street from the south and instead of taking the street, cut the angle, and went between two small buildings. And on the narrow internal street I found them, they were inside the block; I passed this place several times before and did not see any sign from outside. But here they were. I just tried to shoot them; all the credits for this great work belong to other people, invisible in a day time, but leaving those great signs of their presence.

Let me know what do you think. Please take a second and leave comments and (what the heck :-)) votes if you like how I've seen and presented it. Then other people will see it as well.
