This week a friend and I took a ride to New Haven, Connecticut, to check out the graffiti on Water Street. These walls always amaze me.

  15. Loved these. In the UK some cities are providing specific sites for Graffiti artists to try to get them to stop vandalism.
    Slowly, it may be working. And some deserve the forum. There's some amazing artists out there.

  25. Absolutely beautiful! You captured the art nicely. The colours are so vivid. I like looking at graffiti and trying to decipher the social message the artist is making.

    We lived in Branford and then East Haven for 13 years before moving to Florida. We miss the great restaurants the most.

  38. Thank you for the kind comment on my blog. I just had to come back and say that no one has ever said that my "synthesis was delightful." I think that your synthetics are pretty groovy too.

    I used to say I didn't like graffiti, but this is not like the messy vandalism I previously associated with it. So many questions - is it language, can it be read by others in the know, or just the creator...I obviously have some catching up to do! Thanks for the introduction.

    I think I'm scared...LOL. Really, it looks scary maybe because of the colors and the shapes. Nice capture, though. Happy Tuesday!

  45. Oh Wow! Those are amazing!! LOVE them!

  46. Maybe defacing, but unbelievably talented artists. Can't believe this is right around the corner from me. We have graffiti in Norwalk, but not to this extent.

    ReplyDelete
  47. These guys are certainly artists-I can see a lot of effort talent and skill went into making these
    murals.
    Excellent shots!
    Thank You.

    ReplyDelete
  48. it's beautiful, wish we could see more of these on the walls rather than seeing those unsightly vandals made by crazy peeps.

    ReplyDelete
  49. very amazing to do a piece of art that large - what a sense of perspective

    ReplyDelete
  50. wow lovely graffiti!!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Wow … these are amazing pieces of ‘art’ captured and shared here and in Wednesday’s Wordless post too. Thanks for sharing.
    Hugs and blessings,

  52. Hello Sandy

    I also photographer these graffiti, here in Rio.

    It is interesting to note that the features are very similar, although these are a great distance. Perhaps the colorjet requires them to do a job like that.

    When my post photos on this, you call to see.
