It made me feel melancholy... and want to get out my red spraypaint to fix it!

Robin said...

Am I a horrible person that I burst out laughing instead of feeling sorry for them?

I hope whoever our mystery writer is s/he's no longer sad and lonley, or for that matter lonely.

Vita Stunder said...

Something that should have caught my eye too.

Great B&W!

Anne said...

Hi Mojo, That is a really cool picture. After looking at some of your Bethlehem, PA photos I want to make the 90 minute drive and take a few for myself.

You have some very nice photos!

To spell or not to spell! It isn't always easy to write English. I know all about that.
Sad but true:)
But it is a great shot!

This is my first time on monochrome weekly .
You find my picture here

Great photo reflecting a lot of emotion. It makes me wonder who wrote it and where that person is today. Very well done!

That's what grafitti is for...express yourself. Though would be nicer if they were HAPPY!

Bengbeng said...

sad and lonely.. that's a difficult combination. i dont mind being sad but i find it hard to face loneliness

napaboaniya said...

Very sad indeed~ But perhaps it was a looney that wrote that...LOL~

SandyCarlson said...

Good spellers aren't lonely? Explain me, then. (I can spell, not proofread.)

MyMaracas said...

Perfect capture for black and white; it's stark and filled with melancholy and longing.

John said...

A comment on the world; can I be picky? Increase the exposure to lighten the brick work, then increase the contrast, I bet the writing would really stand out from the wall then. Just a comment, well spotted.

Dan said...

it may be Pink Floyds next cover... Looked a lot like The Wall cover. I understand the writer though, its not easy to always get the words correct and in correct order, but I`m Norwegian so that`s my excuse;-) I really liked your shot, almost forgot to tell you;-)

Pagan Sphinx said...

It's grafeety, after al. ;-)

Great find. At least the person was communicating something human, instead of something hateful.
