Graffiti and Bikes

My brother has an unnatural addiction to documenting graffiti art. He will stagger in a contemplative fog all around the boroughs of New York powered only by bean curd and whey, snapping thousands of odd little pictures of space-man paste-ups bills, or gang tags or whatever bizarre shape happens to be slathered in a shadow enough to strike his fancy.

OK, I'm only partly kidding. He actually takes wonderfully contemplative and peaceful pictures of street scenes in New York, which typically feature graffiti and light in composition. His blog, Shadows and Light, is linked to the right there...so check it out!

This bike/graffiti combo was recently posted on Retrobike, and I thought the association between the subject matter of my brothers blog and mine made for an interesting photo.

Hey, how did I miss this??

Not JUST bean curds and whey. Peanut butter, too! :)

This is a cool pic. Nice color coordination!

I 'banked' the post after starting it, and when I finished it it went in order of the start date. Oh well.

Oh yeah, I've had that happen. You can manually change the posting date to correct that. I think you hit "posting options" at the bottom of the post, or something like that.
