Graffiti, spray-painting, writings on the wall. An act of vandalism or art? To me, street art can be neither, both or one of the two. Depends.
I find some writings truly inspirational. I call some of the street writers “street philosophers” because from time to time I stumble across some really nice thoughts.
Here is one that I captured in Southampton:
I don’t know what made him write that, maybe it just crossed his mind and he wanted to share this enlightening message with the rest of us or maybe he’d lost someone or something and needed to get it out of his chest. In any case, he’s damn right! Or she.
I can’t wait for another piece of philosophy the street will tell.
