Every Tuesday, we share photographs from our recent or long-ago travels, or just everyday stuff that appealed to our mindful eye and sharp sensibilities as captured through fleeting images.
Graffiti Art in Munich
We have always been fascinated with graffiti art – especially around Germany which we also featured at one point here. These photos were taken from our stay in Munich last year.
“Well, while you were in the bathroom, I sat down at this picnic table here in Bumblefug, Kentucky, and noticed that someone had carved that GOD HATES FAG, which, aside from being a grammatical nightmare, is absolutely ridiculous. So I’m changing it to ‘God Hates Baguettes.’ It’s tough to disagree with that. Everybody hates baguettes.”

“Graffiti is one of the few tools you have if you have almost nothing. And even if you don’t come up with a picture to cure world poverty you can make someone smile while they’re having a piss.”
“People say graffiti is ugly, irresponsible and childish… but that’s only if it’s done properly.”
“Some people become cops because they want to make the world a better place. Some people become vandals because they want to make the world a better looking place.”
“Graffiti is beautiful; like a brick in the face of a cop.”
― Hunter S. Thompson
“I spray the sky fast. Eyes ahead and behind. Looking for cops. Looking for anyone I don’t want to be here. Paint sails and the things that kick in my head scream from can to brick. See this, see this. See me emptied onto a wall.”
― Cath Crowley,
“Everyone has to scratch on walls somewhere or they go crazy”
