Photo Art Friday

GrAFfiTi!


I took this photo about a month ago.  The area where I have a little boutique at is in The Arts District of Las Vegas.  There are photographers constantly shooting all around us.  This wall gets a lot of attention along with another one down the street and around the corner of us (also inside the garden area of our shop).  

I decided I'd take a photo of the wall (unfortunately we had some "taggers" ruin the wall and it's painted a solid color with nasty tagging on it now)...if I get a chance I'll take another photo and post it here too.

I don't remember everything I did, but I do know I added a glamour glow affect and Pixel Dust Photo Art's texture, "Other Worlds" using blending mode "hardlight" at 100%, erased the texture from the sky area because it just didn't fit.

UPDATE:  Here is the most recent photo of the wall from above.  I'm sure some will still say it's art and that's fine, but I'd rather look at the other wall.

I agree I like the other wall better. Why can't people just leave things alone?

Your edited piece is fabulous! It is a shame that some people are so disrespectful. Graffiti is a topic that stirs controversy as so much of it is just plain defacing and visual trash.
