Another set of street art photos from my trip to Granada a few weeks ago……..
I was totally amazed by how much I found and at how absolutely wonderful some of it was…OK, like any city, there were many walls simply disfigured by paint…half a brain and a spray can rarely results in anything good….but Granada seemed to have more than its fair share of incredibly talented people turning something plain into real beauty…Aerosol Alchemy….
A blog buddy asked me what it was about graffiti that rings my bell….
Apart from the obvious worth of some of the individual pieces, I really get a buzz out of the mind-set where someone commits to producing something that may only last for a few hours..worst case scenario may hardly get an audience at all before its painted over…How many of us could commit emotionally to producing something so transient…
Every shot here was taken in a two hour trawl radiating out from the area around Granadas cathedral…
I’m going back in January and will retrace my steps……What will be left? What will have changed/developed/disappeared?
