Graffiti

We're just back from a short trip to Paris to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. It's going to take a while to go through the photos, but the ones with graffiti in them were easy to pick out...



This one was at the top of Rue Edgar Quinet. We were checking the opening hours of our favourite restaurant and then picking up a metro straight over to the Trocadero. We arrived just before a weekly art market finished - my favourite was a stand with metal sculptures, but we were also attracted by some music-themed paintings. The artist used to be a professional sax teacher and musician, who had taken up painting in his retirement.

  1. How wonderful that you were able to get away to Paris to celebrate your anniversary. What a great way to celebrate 25 years. I am envious having never been there, but I am glad to be able to see a little bit of it through your lens. Happy Anniversary!

  2. congratulations on your 25th! and lovely pics - I love that cat with the cheesy grin. Graffiti is so artistic now, a vast improvement on scrawled slogans.

  3. Congratulations to you & C. You celebrated in style! I am ambivalent about graffiti, at its best it's an art form, but 99% is horrible. The cat in the frame is brilliant!
