Bright BLUE sky..... but what I think is really nice is the person in your photo, the light and shadow. Take that away and it will be very different.
A great shot!

WEll that's a shame. Don't get me going about taggers JM. It makes me furious. Skaters do damage to steps and buildings around here as well. This is however a great slice of life shot. Love that water!

I love this shot. And we seem to occupy a parallel universe. Seems nasty old tagging is worldwide. The figure and shadow are striking in that hard edged geometry. Even his shorts seem made for the shoot. Looks like a perfectly brilliant day and the perfect place to spend it.

Normally I would think poorly of the graffiti on the walls in such a gorgeous setting. However your photo with the young man in the center seems totally balanced.

Very interesting shot with the person and shadows. I think that person would love to have this picture.

Terrific capture as always! I find it very interesting to see the very ancient looking building in the background and the very prominent signs of our time such as, graffiti and skaters in the foreground! Does give one some food for thought! Have a wonderful weekend, JM! Thanks as always for your visit/comment! Always appreciated!

Skateboarding among the graffitti!

Is he waiting for the rest of the skaters before starting to make his move?

It's a shame about the tagging. Those gorgeous shapes and colors look so exotic from here.

Randy said...

I think the skateboarder does make the image. Enjoy your weekend!

This is a neat shot! I like the human element, and straight architectural lines against that beautiful ocean.

Interesting shot. I am sure the taggers are thinking that this old mill is just asking for the tags. If it wasn't there---well.....Odd thoughts. MB
