More graffiti

from our trip to Europe last fall. Both sides of the channel of the Danube flowing through Vienna were covered with the art/graffiti. I spent one Sunday morning--trying to beat the rain-- taking photos when hubby (a psychoanalyst) went off to see Freud's house and it made me wish I'd been down there when the light was better. Encountering the political street art is what motivated me to suggest it as a theme for one of our contests.

These shots are all in Vienna (except the last one in Prague). I thought it was really interesting that the area seemed to be a place dedicated to allowing the art. The first one I noticed from the balcony where we were staying across the river. Two days later I went down to walk along the channel and look at the graffiti.

And, of course, my entry in the 'based on a song' February contest!






And the John Lennon Wall in Prague

2. Very clever, I thought.

One of my favorites. I also liked the STOP sign changed to SHOP and the world in pain from the injections of poison.

3. The Monsanto chicken comes across loud and clear.

Love the frog. This stuff is much more political than the stuff I found.
