Share: 

While murals and street art are always a fun thing to photograph, getting good photos of the subject is a little harder than it seems at first. Often getting a clever context to the art helps in producing a compelling photo. We think the photos in this collection have done a pretty good job of photographing murals with some good results.

I love the juxtaposition of image and reality.
Near to some apartments in Manchester Piccadilly is a canal which passes through a tunnel. It is a secluded spot used by people for various activities. The police have put up a number of signs. A little later this Banksy style image appeared.

In a part of Copenhagen called “Sydhavnen” there are lot of Graffity. The place is called “Det hemmelige galleri” (The secret gallery). Reply

All I can say is “awww..” The murals are breathtaking. They just showed how good artists can be. I envy not having those kinds of murals near our home. I could really use them for photo opps whenever I get my camera.

Wow! the murals are breathtaking and the photographer has composed the picture very well to let the viewer have the full impact.

Banksy is amazing as always, but I was especially struck by the “Liberty” image as well as the “real and unreal”. But perhaps my favorite was the mish-mash next to the poster of Bradley Manning.

Ooops, trying to load the picture again. This one was taken last year by my brother. He didn’t spot the cross quite so clearly until he got home. It’s the graffiti tunnel at Sydney University. Reply
