Theme Day - Graffiti & 100th Post

It's Theme Day time again! And my 100th post! This graffiti is on the side of one of the ramps at the Skate and BMX Park in Pitville Park. There was lots of different 'artwork' to choose from but I decided on this one as it was the most colourful and the original graffiti has been vandalised by someone spray painting 'skate' over the top of it!

There are over 140 City Daily Photo Blogs taking part in today's Theme Day, so take some time out to tour the world checking out graffiti.

this is similar to the kind of stuff we get round here.

i see a lot of 'cool' graffiti like this on the trains that pass through town.. most of the stuff 'in town' is pretty basic like the 'skate'... this is a 'nice' graffiti example - the pink is melting!

Happy 100th. A skate park is a good place for graffiti - let those who do it, live with it.

Jim said...

Congrats on 100!

Funny that the first graffiti has graffiti over top of it.

Rambling Round said...

Skate parks seem to be a favorite place for street art and vandalizing paint!
Congratulations on making it to 100 posts!

Bergson said...

cheer for the 100 posts and long life with your blog

Neva said...

Marley, Congratulations on your 100th post....how fun that it came on theme day! I like your graffiti....the colors are lovely but mostly I am not a fan !

Southern Heart said...

Nice, colorful image...and congratulations on your 100th post!

Ineke said...

The original graffiti has been vandalised. Great phrase!

Jackie said...

Yes, it always makes me smile to see grafitti that has been grafittied itself. I always kind of figure the original 'artist' wouldn't mind too much.

Gail's Man said...

Best wishes for your "ton". I wonder what the initials stand for.

Gordon said...

A good choice; graffiti on graffiti. Congratulations on your 100th post. I posted my 100th on Friday but got sidetracked and forgot to mention it.

Greg said...

Great choice for the theme day and well done on reaching your 100th post!

Andrée said...

This is attractive, at least the way you present it. I don't usually like graffiti. Very nice photograph. Here is my CDP: Street Art entry (too late for the list). Thank you.
