Bench Graffiti

Love is the river of life in the world.
~ Henry Ward Beecher ~


"Run Forrest - run!"


Bench graffiti can be a certain type of art, yes.
But can anyone tell me WHY are people really doing this?

Hi Sue:
Glad to here MaryLou is first again! Some grafitti artists are so talented its unbelievable, but I'm with you - don't know why. 15 minutes of fame, maybe?

Susanne49 said...

Yes, Bill...:) Christmas is (finally) over and Mary Lou is still my favorite...LOL.. she has to come first, right?!!:)

Thanks for listening :)

OregonArtGuy said...

Hi Sue: You are absolutely right! Now, why didn't I put a couple of fiddles in the background? Alas, my creativity doth flounder. :-}

Susanne49 said...

No, no...you are creative, Bill. Don't worry! :)

I agree there can be art in graffiti but have no clue why-- maybe like OregonArtGuy said, 15 min.

(I think California might be the graffiti capitol of the world.)

Marcie said...

Who knows 'why'? I think people just like to leave their mark...or they're bored....or they enjoy marking up other people's property? Love how you've collecting the 'evidence'!!!

Susanne49 said...

I'm excited to see the California graffiti on our travels, a lot to photograph, I bet! Thanks for the comment, Tricia! :)

Susanne49 said...

Thank you so much Marice, I'm glad you liked my little report :)

Bob Johnson said...

Cool pics Susanne. We get a lot of graffiti at the mall, all real bad , mostly gangs and kids marking their territory.

Bench grafitti...Having grown up in a very large city, I love it. I don't know why it's done specifically but I think it might have something to do with making the moment as permanent as possible.

Carrie Hayes said...

So I wonder is Ally and Chris are still together?!

Susanne49 said...

Thank you very much for the comment, Bob! :)

Susanne49 said...

Yes, you are right Mari'!I see it that way too. Thanks for visiting! :)

Susanne49 said...

That's a very good question, Carrie...LOL.. thanks for your comment. :)

kml said...

You found some really good ones! The ones we have in the city around here are pretty nasty.

Susanne49 said...

Hi Susan, I am with you, I love graffiti. I often photograph all the graffiti and wall art wherever I am in the world. I love it. Carla x

Susanne49 said...

Ciao Carla,

I love these tags, I always wonder who did that, for what reason, I can imagine a full story - it's what I like in photography - telling nices stories...with the light :) In that sense, b_w is easier to work on (it's what I am doing now)...
SwissCharles
btw happy to find you, too :)

Susanne49 said...

Hi Charles,

thanks for your kind comment. Yes, photography is "writing with light" and me too, I like to express my feelings and my thoughts trough this media, it's actually more like a passion!:)
