Instead of rust or metal crap (which I could not find in Lille ;-)), I bring you tags tonight, which to me is a kind of crap as well.
I doubt that the tags are from the owners of the mailboxes, BTW.
I found this while strolling on my own on Friday afternoon, before I had the pleasure of meeting all those TE-members.
Dear friends, I'm sorry I have so little time to spend and write comments on all the lovely photo's that are posted and the beautiful workshops. I will try to catch up later.

You get an interesting cropping on this special art in the city. I am not sure that the people living there are happy but in fact this is art.
Nice cropping !
All the best

Geometric crap + graffiti crap make a good Lille crap tonight.
Your eye was vigilant prior to the meeting, i see. A fine design, a cartesian presentation. Very nice...

There's a kinda rusty crusty feel to this image Rinie - urban decay of a sort - or is it embellishment - I guess it all depends on your world view - there was some very daring tagging around the city - did you see the dome near the the by now very famous statue? The variety and 'neatness of these tags across the boxes creates a very interesting art work in itself........well spotted!

beautiful, Rinie, and that small piece of wall breaks the pattern repetition nicely.
les couleurs sont super!

Hi dear. I love this kind of photos so graphic. I wonder about the outcome cropping the brick part in the upper left part of the photo, but I like it like this as well. Take care.

I musch prefer this shot to rust anyway, now we can see INTENTIONAL decay, and see that each of those scribbles have a story of their own... A modern art made of trash.

I'm not sure that I would appreciate to have this done to my own mailbox, but I must admit that your composition is quite graphical. You have a very good eye to see such details!
Have a nice day.
P.S. Here's a WS for you... ;o)

Tu as su "voir" cette composition et en tirer un maximum pour nous proposer cette très intéressante composition. Content de t'avoir rencontrée samedi.

Ah Rinie, this is fab, a fascinating take on the urban condition of Lille the almost central compo is wicked. Great and graphic stuff! It was a pitty that I couldn't join - the pics of the event tell a great story.
Have a great week,

Good repetition of the lockers & their tags. Kind of self defeating of the taggers, wanting individuality, yet ending up all looking pretty much the same. Good social commentary. Superb sharpness & framing. Congratulations!

Hi Rinie, interesting unusual shot, and good to see you posting again, and hadn't notced. Yes, I quite appreciate you comment at the end here, same with me, except for today, when I find myself with 6 hours to kill at Wroclaw airport, wondering if I'll get home tonight.

Voilà une image de la réalité des grandes cités populaires où tout est dégradé. J'habite à la campagne et tout cela est devenu effrayant.
Bonne idée montrer aussi cela au milieu des paysages soporifiques et des photos artistiques.
bon dimanche et toutes mon amitié

Hello Rinie.... I make use of the latter photo to say to you ' HAPPY CHRISTMAS AND GOOD NEW YEAR ' ... with the hope to see your new images for the year 2009.
Un abrazo y hasta pronto.

I should have looked before I spoke :)
I think i would have taken the brickwork away and just gone for the mailboxes, but i just read what you said to Miguel. Good to see you out with your camera again.
Just looked at the date again and it seems I was right from teh start you are just spying this was your last upload of exactly one year ago!! :)
