The Coverup

I’ve done many posts on tagging, graffiti and street art in general. I thought it was time to give some space to the coverup effort that sometimes follows.

Grafitti and Gentrification

Just an observation with no provable data: As neighborhoods decline and are on the cusp of gentrification, graffiti/street art goes on the upswing. If true, there is probably a multitude of reasons for this trend or cycle. These images are from the same area north of Seattle U., on Capitol Hill.

Costly Manhattan Parking

This Jeep has Canadian plates that expired in 2006. I would guess there is an interesting story behind this vehicle and how it got here, in the LES. The sign on the left say: “Active Driveway”. With the barbed wire, I think not.

Dublin Graffiti

The first afternoon we were in Dublin we discovered this lane with both graffiti and old stone walls. The lane got a little sketchy towards the end where it meets the canal. Probably not a place I would venture after the dark, but it was interesting that this was my first view of Dublin.SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Determination

Even this metal mesh could not deter some tagger from defacing a building on Alberta St.DSC_3441-001

Odds and Ends

Odd and ends for a Saturday. All from NE Portland. Elevated bike? Large map of Portland on the side of a garage– I am not sure of the meaning of any of this stuff. “And so it goes”.

More vegetation in odd places,, broken windows and signage. Apparently King County Solid Waste Management Division is the current owner. On my to-do list is to find a contact inside the organization to field some of my questions.
