Monday Mural #9: Artists at work

I was photographing it when he came in to say the artwork needed some shadows. After he was done I couldn’t tell where he put the shadows. I don’t have the artist’s eye, I’m afraid.

I wonder if they were all friends and the others chose to take a break instead of work.

These were taken from Albany Bulb. I had posted about my visit to the park last year, here.

    I read your post on the Bulb. Fascinating place. Compared to some of the other art found there, this tagging seems less developed. But the guy clearly has an aesthetic he’s following if he thinks it needs more shadow. How I wish I could read the graffiti lettering I find. Thanks for introducing us to the Bulb and for linking to Monday Mural. Makes me want to take a trip out there and see it for myself.

    Art is in the eye of the beholder or the artist I guess!

    I am impressed with the way they shadow the words. I wouldn’t know how to do it either! And it’s not the worst graffiti I’ve seen. 😉

    I probably wouldn’t have noticed where the shadows were added, either. It definitely is a bright and bold work of art.

    I am curious about the pink leg-like structures on the top of the first picture!

    Good shots of the new murals. I forgot to answer your question in my comment on your next post. I haven’t taken a train ride in the West Virginia mountains. I have in the NC mountains but most of my train travels were prior to my being into photography so other than the subway in cities when I usually don’t feel like taking pictures, most of my train shots over the past 7 years are from cars or walking. One trip I really regret not taking more pictures was when my daughter was studying in Germany and I met her and we took a train from Germany to France. I didn’t take hardly any pictures at all.
