Its a question that I ask myself many times for decades. I admit, that some, *SOME* graffiti looks nice but the vast majority not so much.

Heck! I'm a huge fan of the street artist, Banksy. I think his works are brilliant. Its considered an honor to have your wall vandalized by him. Vandalizing property with simple crap/gang affiliation graffiti, not so much.

OK, ramble over. I saw this piece of graffiti on an abandoned newspaper vending machine. It has been abandoned for over 10 years I've seen it decay for over longer than that time. Someone decided to use their artistic talents on the front of it using chalk. It made me smile when I saw it, the abstract figure there. So thus I took photo evidence of it.

Yeah, vandalism VS art is truly a tough question.

I hope this is a better SCRAP post. One person disapproved of the vacation photos I shared the last time.
