Photo Challenge #30 - Graffiti and Murals - Extended

R U L E S:- The host gives you a topic of interest and you get going. You post ONE image (only first image by one person will be judged) that is relevant to the challenger theme. You can change your image as many times as you like before the deadline.

- The host chooses a winner *AND* runner-up after closing. The decision of the judge (the Host!) is final. The judge is *not* eligible. The winner then chooses the next topic, tells everyone when the photo's must be posted by (give some reasonable amount of time like a week), runs the challenge, judges the winner and passes on the baton to that person. Winner/Host, please post a reasonable topic that someone who's not a pro photographer can be a part of. Remember it's not just cool shots, but the story that can be told for some.

- If the winner fails to post a new challenge within 48 hours of being declared the winner then the runner-up should post the new challenge within a further 24 hours.

- Any picture you've taken is eligible regardless of time taken and camera it was taken with. You can do all the post processing you want. However, it is most helpful if you list your camera, lens and exposure info along with your photo.

- All levels welcome. If you don't have the best lens or just a plain old pocket camera but your shot tells a wonderful story then there's no reason you can't win! This is about overall photo's and their story, not just about expensive equipment.

- Feel free to comment on other contestant's images. If you want someone to leave you a piece of constructive criticism, ask for it...after all we are here to learn too and practice.

- Provide any additional information concerning your entry you want. Explaining how the shot might relate to the topic could help too.

- Winner/Host, please copy and paste these rules into the topic and thread that you post because some might start doing contests later


This weeks topic is Graffiti and Murals. I'm looking for outdoor wall art with a message. There are many such installations around the metro area and throughout the US, even with the decrease of graffiti on trains, etc. over the last few years. Community, religious, protest, etc. All are good.

Deadline is 11:59 PM Saturday, January 17th.

I'll scan in a pic and post as an example.

Craig

This was taken in 1979 at the corner of Madison and Morgan Streets in Chicago, when the area was still considered Chicago's "Skid Row". It was on the east wall of a building on the Northeast corner. I was struck by the sophistication of the message and the location. This scan of a 30 year old 3x5 print doesn't do it justice. Taken with an Olympus OM-10 with a f5.6 70-150 lens. The pic was taken in the afternoon as the sun is reflecting off the lens on the lower left, and can be seen just above the building roof line.

OIC, thanks.

I was planning on taking a drive up to Venice Beach to take some really cool ones but found this place instead. Closer to home and no L.A. traffic .
