There are not many graffiti "locations" at all in Israel, let alone a place with such a congested graffiti over a small space - but I found one "secret" location, not a pleasent area to stroll daily (and nightly...), only on Saturday morning you might take pictures with no interuptions: Those workshops and garages are closed - so one can look at a whole view.
I skipped the lower left side intentionally as there was a garbage-pile, not worth to show...
No. 2 will follow, and on no. 3 I'll show two subjects combined.

I am sipping a hot cup of tea with mint, sugar and milk and looking at this funny graffiti. I tell you, NYC is full of graffiti but I have not gone after them. This one looks like a comic book page . Love the colors and sharpness. Waiting for no2.

This is an unusual post for you, but just as engaging as all the others. Your photograph exhibits excellent color and resolution. I am curious about the message of the graffiti, that appears to link the flasks in a chemistry lab.

Thanks for your visit Ike.
This is the signature of "bad boys and girls" but it always attracts attention, especially when artfully executed!
Us on TE take means of showing our talent an so do they, with an intense feeling of mischievousness that we will never enjoy though!!

A nice composition of that attractive street graffiti! A pleasure to look at. Very well seen and executed. TFS.

Have a nice day

The subject is well framed. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the graffiti. A way for people to express themselve. The morning light is giving nice tints to the colors. Have a nice day.

I like graffiti, give a hint of color and life to the gray city, this is very beautiful, as Lakshmi says looks like a comic strip, nice colors too,

Hello dear Ike
Now this is a very different genre of photography from you. It is not often we see this "street" type of scene. Beautiful colours, excellent Point of View and sharpness. So good to see this original shot.
Royaldevon (23410) 2012-02-07 2:17
Not your usual type of shot but one which shows your eagerness to capture all aspects of your city. It is sharp and beautifully lit. But what an intriguing subject ... is it Jekyll and Hyde?
I suppose, that's not a question that you can answer!
Have a good day,
jhm (130642) 2012-02-07 4:07
I believe the first time that you places a picture with graffiti, sometimes the plague of the 21 century on nice buildings, I am before artwork but on a legal way.
Nice city picture, taken with a very high sharpness and clarity.
Excellent captured and composed, very well done, TFS.
Have a nice day,

Great chaotic image with the graffiti as main subject.
Very well framed Ike,

Vrlo interesantno mesto sa grafitima na zidu.
Mladi crtaju i pisu na zidovima, ostavljaju poruku ...
Dobra ostrina snimka, kontasr i prikaz, lepe boje.
U mom gradu ima dosta grafita.
Prijatno popodne sa lepim vremenom, kod nas Sibirska zima, vlada je proglasila vanredno stanje u zemlji.
Very interesting place with graffiti on the wall.
Young draw and write on the walls, leave a message ...
Good image sharpness, and kontasr view, beautiful colors.
In my town there are a lot of graffiti.
A lovely afternoon with a nice time in our Siberian winter, the government declared a state of emergency in the country.
All the best.
maria-v1981 (10420) 2012-02-07 8:40
This graffiti has a lot of style,attidute and theme.
This type of expression is propagated in entire the world. I like the colours and especially the bird. Very framed composition.
All the best,

graffiti segni dei tempi...
Immagine colta per le strade della città sotto una buona luce che rende brillanti i colori di queste opere,
un saluto e buona serata

Some called this art, is it? But there's a graffiti artists who will become a millionaire when Facebook goes public...figure that out. Very nice capture of this art or whatever you want to call it. Good details and wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.
danos (80278) 2012-02-08 0:31
these graffiti walls reminds me some walls in Athens that looks alike with it.Nice presentation with the complex of the foreground graffiti to try to tell us a lot of meanings,unfortunatelly without to understand them.
Have a good day,danos

Good frame and colors.
Photo has climate.
TopGeo (38126) 2012-02-08 5:08
Hello Ike Others call it art, others destroyed, others other political revolution! It is perhaps a manifestation of young people who want to talk but not their perceived and prosecuted! It seems to me many questions!Best regards

Um abraço Gonçalo
adramad (32881) 2012-02-08 7:03
I do not like all the graffiti in cities, I think the eyesore, but extrapolating the image here, to this magnificent composition is a very attractive image, which I think should also have a message in the drawings and texts.
The quality is superb with this good sharpness and color, every detail looks good here.
Have a great evening.
Silvio1953 (109295) 2012-02-08 9:09
Ciao Ike, great view of fantastic graffiti, excellent perspective, splendid light and colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello dear Ike
I love graffiti, as well as any other when are creating a visually beautiful, or when carrying any message.
I do not like the desecration of objects that have just been renovated.
Unfortunately, there are a lot of graffiti in which they belong.
Excellent work, nice presentation and excellent quality.
Nice diagonally capture.
emilbo (21962) 2012-02-08 16:49
Très bien captés ces graffitis, dommage que ces artistes de la rue, si on peut dire, n'emploient pas leurs talent à des choses plus importantes. Toutefois ils sont très intéressants et bien présentés. Merci de nous les faire voir dans une excellente qualité d'image.
Toutes mes amitiés,
adores (32170) 2012-02-08 18:33
Here it is:)! They are just great!Very good pov, sharpness and colours to show the details. I'll check the others:)!
Heve you tried a combination of graffiti and people? It would also work very well, I think!
cavli (1874) 2012-02-10 4:11
Well framed composition. I like taking grafitti's pictures too. :) It is very jofull :) nice colors..
sacimar (25971) 2012-02-11 6:04
I like this kind of modern graffiti, the image is interesting, good details and point of view, there are a lot of artists out there...
claudeD (28253) 2012-02-12 3:07
very interesting contribution to TE. I like the fresh colors and the perfect sharpness. I am waiting for No 2.TFS.
With regards from Luxembourg
macjake (48349) 2012-02-12 11:39
yes, i know exactly what you mean about walking these streets....we have our rough side aswell.
clever timing to visit here strategically on a sat morning.
I love graffiti and murals, even more fun to photograph them.
vibrant and colorful all in one.
raszid62 (18583) 2012-02-22 8:49
Very interesting these colorful graffiti on the old walls. I also prefer when, instead of gray concrete walls, we see color images, provided, however, when it is in them though shadow of artistry.
צהריים טובים. מעניין מאוד אלה גרפיטי צבעוני על קירות ישנים. אני גם מעדיף כאשר, במקום קירות הבטון האפורים, אנו רואים תמונות צבעוניות, וזאת, כאשר הוא נמצא אותם כי האמנות צל. שלך.
jmdias (49671) 2012-03-01 16:39
nice slice of graffities. I liked them and its shapes and colors, good image showing these pieces of art in a good light.
yeln (11504) 2012-03-20 15:02

Miguel82 (16568) 2012-05-22 6:09
Very beautiful artist work, a good document
Fine colors, light and excellent sharpness
Have a nice day
KristinsCamera (2371) 2013-08-01 10:11
I love street art for its freedom of expression and what it reveals about a society, or a group (usually maligned or cast off to the side) within that society. I appreciate its edginess and no rules approach, and the reflections or revelations it casts on the mainstream group. I also like its transience, its lack of permanence. And very often, these artists are the first to tell us about movements and ideas, the first to hold up the mirrors so 'society' can see itself.
Your photograph contains all of this, if only we understand how to interpret it :)
Nice capture, thanks for sharing ~
kato (10577) 2013-08-25 12:02
You're capturing well this Graffiti by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the wall describing some kind of colorful graffiti. It's painted a fictitious animal and a lot of bottles at the left. There are an interesting thing and a dirty ones also in graffiti. This belongs the work the art a little. And, it seems to this that it is the thing written by the young artist, and there is the degree of earnestness considerably.
