    I Photograph It

    I just have this fascination with graffiti.  I photograph it sometimes.  Any time I visit a new city, I make sure to find places with interesting graffiti to look at.

    Graffiti Lettering

    Tagging lettering is fascinating to me! Albeit at times the artist may well be defacing another's property, I understand that. On the other hand, the lettering / artwork is it's own language, perhaps even a "code" if you will. I especially appreciate the shading, or the...

    Why do you have to wait till 18 to have sex? It's weird. If you are ready then don't torture your body and let it have some pleasure. Everybody deserves it.
