photoblog image glory church of graffiti

glory church of graffiti

apparently it was once a church.  the graffiti artists have respected this, creating an altar inside using paint art, frames, cd's, coins, etc. (see 16 September post).

Very nice shot!
Shanti: thanks, asmundur. one day i'll figure out how to do the processing, hdr, for example, on shots like this! thanks for your comment and visit.
Wow - Bravo !
Seems coming from a science fiction moovie, long time after nuclear war ! A great shot !!
Shanti: thanks, zebigleb. yeah, i just watched an old wim wenders film recently, "Until the End of the World"... and it does have a similar mood...
yes you can say its a monument to graffiti,but how nice would it look without the "art"..nevertheless it is a wonderful image.
Shanti: thanks for visiting and commenting, neil. i have to say i think it would look kinda like a plain old cement ruin without the art!

nice shot shanti. going out to the desert, got our hats 'check' sunscreen 'check' spraycans 'check' now lets go find ourselves an abandoned church. 'check'
Shanti: thanks nev. yes, i guess it is a strange thing. but this is right off the highway, so it's visible, and well... it looks like an interesting pit-stop, and i would imagine these artists travel about with their spray-cans handy. i would, anyway.
i'd like to live there for awhile.
Shanti: it could be st. russell's church of precontextual conversion.
(don't ask me what that means... it just showed up and i duly typed it)
