That photo is beautiful and the graffiti is so subtle, it almost looks like a decoration.

Have a fun Theme Day, Jim!

Kuanyin said...

Graffiti on Revere Street---I wonder what old Paul would have to say about this! Happy Theme Day!

Sally said...

Looks liek a ribbon. Not like Green Boy!

Ham said...

That's a great image witht he shadow on the bricks

Hyde DP said...

A lovely lamp spoilt. Great photo though.

Sailor Girl said...

But it is subtle indeed!! Great choice!!!!!

Chuck Pefley said...

well, in my book, this one falls clearly into the vandalism category.

Isadora said...

You can hardly tell it is there - apparently people are kept more involved with other things in Boston and don't have the need or the time for this type of self expression.

Jilly said...

Love the photo. As I said on Quincy, some cities have a lot of street art and some little. I like how you've taken this photograph.

Jules said...

This is the sort of graffiti that defaces. The beautiful building and street are obviously historically important - such a pity, but at least it is quite small. Good spotting!!!

Gordon said...

This kind of graffiti is such a nuisance; I guess someone will paint it over sometime. Interesting photo though; love the shadows.

George Townboy said...

Beautiful street lamp, and a crazy place for a Post Office relay box.

Nice shot!

Kate said...

The shadow of the clock on the brick wall is an added bonus!

lynn said...

Lovely.

The Lone Beader said...

That is a very small work of graffiti.

marley said...

Nice photo. I think it looks more like some decoration!

Neva said...

I like the symbolism of it being on Revere Street!

Southern Heart said...

I guess I'm old fashioned and put that one in the vandalism category, too. :) But, the script is nice...

I love the surrounding scene very much!

Denton said...

It would be a beautiful scene if not for the tag. I hope they paint over it quickly.

gizelle said...

There it is, hi Jim...I always like looking at lamp photos...thats spray paint on the bin right? true it looks like a deco...

Jackie said...

That is very subtle grafitti - I hope they paint over it, but I suppose if they do someone else will be along soon enough to deface it again.

Thanks for your comment on Glasgow DP :)

Ben said...

Very nice photograph. Until I enlarged the image, it's looks like a part of design.

Gail's Man said...

I guess Boston doesn't have much graffiti, judging by your example. Nice street light though.

Joy said...

I like the simplicity of the graffiti. I love the street lamp!

If there's a will there's a way :) I like the colour they chose to spray paint the wall.

Thanks for visiting Norwich Daily Photo and for leaving your comments. Do visit again!

Happy Theme Day!

I don't know if I can say "a piece of art", but I did notice how strangely the mail box sits on top of that cement piece. It's like the whole thing was plopped down right there!

Sally said...

Really interesting point you made on my blog about Paramount Pictures, clueless! No the building is not still owned by Paramount. Maybe they have a licence deal? Maybe it will disappear and my photo will be the only record?

Greg said...

A lovely old lamp, i didn't even notice the graffiti straight away.

Keropok Man said...

simple graffiti.
(if there's such a thing haha..)

I nearly did not spot it!


Happy Theme Day!

Kim said...

What an artful photo! I love the shadow and the prominence it has. The tag is as subtle as a chop mark on Chinese script.

I can't make out what it says (or means). But the way you photographed it with the Revere name gives it added irony. Here is my CDP: Street Art entry (too late for the list). Thank you.

Lynette said...

Great photo--I like the shadow of the lamp on the bricks.

Corey Templeton said...

The shadow from the light fixture is intense, very nice.

R&R in The Netherlands said...

I too like the irony of Revere street. Good choice.
