Liverpool based graffiti:
The following posts provide two examples of graffiti photographed in a Manchester suburb, and a further two from Liverpool. Manchester and Liverpool are cities with a keen rivalry running between them, not least in terms of football (soccer), and so it is left to the reader/viewer to decide which city puts its creative talent to best use.
The posts are marked Not Safe For Work primarily because of the Manchester based graffiti, which contains language likely to offend. The Liverpool based graffiti is not offensive as such, but may jab at one’s sensibilities, depending on your thoughts on all matters scatological. This being said, Manchester is up first because chronologically speaking its examples of graffiti were captured first, with the Liverpool examples following soon after. All of them made me chuckle a little, and smile, which cannot be a bad thing. Hats off to those artists who create just for the sake of it.
Dead end. Where do you go when you reach a dead end? It’s not literally a dead end, whilst literally being a dead end sign. Keep going? Turn around?
There’s a bridge over a canal near to where I live, where someone has corrected the graffiti of another. Grammatical correctness, whether it be a simple matter of spelling or punctuation, cannot be ignored. The writing on the wall used to say, “[someone] loves cocain” – now it says, “[someone] loves cocain[e].”In a similar vein, consider the editor of this little piece:
I prefer the edited version.
