photoblog image Along the South Bank #6

Along the South Bank #6

The show must go on @ the Graffiti Skate Board Park

In the midst of all the skate boarding and bmx bike kids along the South Bank skate board park. There was this one kid, who once helped down the ramp with his wheel chair, hobbled around on he's one good leg to do some graffiti tagging. Safe to assume that he probably broke it while honing his skills doing some dare devil stunt.

Read some where  the powers that be, might be looking to close down this 80 meters graffiti stretch, as it's considered a bit of an eye sore. I guess only to be replaced by more coffee and latte bars to rip off the many tourists who come down to the South Bank year in year out. It would be a great shame if they did, as it's the one part of the South Bank that teenagers and kids identify with.

Colours coming at you from every corner, then I noticed that the artist made the effort to get out of his wheelchair to spray "Kiss". Perhaps he wants someone to kiss his injured foot better?

Beautiful and empowering smile!
Beautiful colours. I wish I could find a place with lots of graffiti in the city I live in. Maybe I just dont know where to go.
This image is just so full of life! The feeling is a good one. great capture.
