I was wandering around the Barbican area of London and noticed some fantastic graffiti down a little side street that wasn't at all obvious from the main drag. The mattress added something a little additional to the composition.

Yes, well said.

What a striking find of art juxtaposed with the mundane. Having a different background for each rectangle is a bonus. Then there is the puzzel of what could be narrow enough to navigate on the skinny side of the double yellow line. Good catch all around.

Good composition but poorly focused. Good potential.

The diffusion adds a lot to this shot, I'm a fan!

Oooo! Dirty little secrets abound! Love the contrasting subjects and the colors. Not so sure about the crop though.

I like the red on the dumpster in relation to the pale mattress.

Definately one of the lesser seen aspects of the city. Interesting how the textures, colours and shapes are all in their own little boxedf areas.
