    Graffiti close-ups

    Hi,

    the walls around our railway station are 'decorated' with graffiti.
    I'm normally not a big fan of taggers (understatement of the week), but I took a 'closer look' at them, and this is what came out

    (Micro-Nikkor 55/2.8 on G1)
    Shot in RAW, converted in Silkypix and some PP in Corel PSP Photo X2

    Very nice. I guess you used a tripod?

    Beautiful idea. I especially like the "cracked" ones. It reminds me of old paintings that weren't well prepared beforehand.

    Re: Graffiti close-ups

    This is not a m4/3 shot but got inspired by this thread. I always like graffiti but check now more a closer view.

    Re: Graffiti close-ups

    Glad to have been "inspiring", Uwe, and glad to see this thread living, even with a non 4/3 pic. Let's not get "camera-racists"

    Anyone else having been inspired, please feel free to add here !

    Here's a "mission statement" from a Seattle artist. G1 and 20/1.7, on a rainy day, while avoiding the supposedly homeless guy with the cardboard sign who "owns" that street corner.
