Graffiti that really speaks

JFK Quote

 

Walking around downtown New York I stumbled upon this.  I totally love this quote, not that I can really apply it to my everyday life, but I still think it’s a great concept to think about.  While looking at the quote I noticed something interesting.  There was graffiti around it, and on it, but if you look closely someone has deliberately kept this on the side of their store.  They painted that great yellow color all around the quote, but not over it, just over the graffiti.  Thinking about that was fun.  Imagining someone with a roller on a pole, painting the whole side of the building, but leaving this one inspirational quote.  Great work to whoever did that.

    That is a very neat quote and definite kudos to the shop-owner for leaving it up… and to you for seeing and photographing it!

    Enlightening piece. I know I’m a little late in posting my comment but the article was to the point and just the information I was looking for. I can’t say that I agree with all the points you made but it was decidedly absorbing! BTW…I found your site through a Bing search. I’m a frequent visitor to your blog and will return again soon.
