Underpass


The title today says it all really. Although Cheltenham is a lovely place with posh shops and Regency architecture it does have a few rough areas. This graffiti covered underpass is an example of what is common in most towns and cities. I think it adds to the feel of a place and keeps it real. That's today's message. Keep it real.

Indeed. Didn't know this existed. Those two look like policemen.

Not one underpass, motorway, or flyover here. I can feel the urban grit off this shot. You really have kept it real and I admire you for that. Life ain't always pretty.

I think I'd be scared to walk down that underpass by myself. Those two men look like they even have a dog with them!

Underpasses have never been common in Metro Manila. Aside from the fact that they're more expensive to build than foot bridges, we just flood too often.

Definitely a "Keep It Real" shot!

I like the twinkle lights post below!

Cool shot Marley. The shadowy people give it the real feel that exists in these sort of underpasses.

That is definitely an interesting photo. It's not pretty but it's real. And I like it a lot.

Urgh not nice. Interesting, but not nice.

This could have been taken in Belgrade. Art or vandalism?

Though I detest graffitti on our public buildings, this is an excellent place for these young artists.

My sister and I used to call this underpass the worm tunnel! It must have been a pretty big worm!

Looks like art covered with a bit of graffiti. Nice colours actually. Nice blog too (it's my first visit).
