Graffiti

I have to admit, I've always been really stoked on graffiti. As a kid I would find myself staring at the buildings and passing train cars, on my skytrain rides around Vancouver trying to decipher what these fabulous works of art said and wondering how something that looked so cool could be a crime.  Then I grew up and got into skateboarding...

Anyway I will continue to add pictures as I take them, so this will be a long, long blog post. I would also like to take this opportunity to say I am in no way claiming to be a photographer (this should be pretty obvious) or an artist, none of the graffiti posted here is painted by me. (I wish I had the talent to paint like these guys) One day I will also get myself a decent camera.

The first section here is from Whistler in beautiful British Columbia.
