Graffiti No. 1

This is one of the graffitis from Wiesbaden's most colorful house I posted on Monday. An everyday story: in the center is the beautiful woman, highly desired by the two men around her but she is reaching out to the third (maybe unreachable) guy... I'm just making this up, but this is how it could be, don't you agree?

I actually wanted to post this tomorrow to join Trier Daily Photo in his "Graffiti Sundays" but then we, as in City Daily Photo Bloggers, decided on a theme for tomorrow - we're all gonna post a Spring photo tomorrow! Still have to decide on one...

Nice graffiti with this close up. I can't join the idea of tomorrow Spring pictures, since we are moving into autumn here :) Happy Spring for the rest of you guys!

Yeah, i like the grafitti series...with the story behind the drawing too. Nice idea, Nicola...plus these graffities can be very colorful and artistic :-)

A woman with two men-admirers, and she's reaching for the untoucheable guy? Sure...isn't it common amongst us to see the grass always greener on the other side of the fence? never satisfied or happy with the one/s we have? or should I say that when we're adored/admired by a few (in this case two men) we're more likely to be attracted to the third guy who's in fact not giving us attention? we'd like to 'break' him too...to put him on the 'admirer' list, and then we'd say...next? :-P remember the line "don't hate me because i'm beautiful"? drama queen...

Can't wait for another graffiti/story, Nicola...:-)

Graffiti that is more story-telling, than typographic (of people's signature)! Interesting contrast!

As I walked past here today I took some pictures (only from my phone - not superb quality like yours) of the opposite side of the road...

You can see it here

Quite a contrast!?!

Very nice, I love graffiti, used to do a little bit when I was a teen;)
I can imagine them, with their sprays and staff, working on this wal... :)

Serendipity at work today. I posted a photo of mural last night as well. (Carlos too.) Strange.

Thank you, Sam!

Karine - No worries! Will check out what you post instead!

Maya - "the grass is always greener on the other side" - unfortunately, that's the problem a lot of times. A friend of mine just broke up with his girlfriend because of that - well, actually she broke up since she had the feeling of missing something. I hear that very often... So, what can we do about it? Not very much, I think. It's probably an experience we have to go through to (eventually) learn to be happy with what's there and not always look for the better... Tough lesson to learn...

luminlight - I agree with you. This is a lot better than signature-like graffitis that don't really say anything.

marieta - Cool! I'd love to see some pictures of the Wiesbaden pub. Is there a story behind it?

bob - looking forward to it!

mrc - I honestly don't know. Looks like it's been there for a while now :).

p - thanks for sharing the photos! Yes, looks pretty bad at the moment...

cynthia - thanks!

dia - what did you spray as a kid? Picture-like or more signature-like graffitis?

luggi - Bob had the idea of starting a game where the one who finds the "duplicate" and says SNAP! first, wins points or something like that.... SNAP! ;-D.

To me, it appears as a divorced Mother with two sons. She still loves her x-husband. He still stays close to his sons, but out of reach of his ex-wife. After time his memory is fading from his wife.

Not that this has happened to me. My mom and dad will be married for 46 years in June.

Just a thought.

tony - hmmm, that's an interesting thought! I think you could be right as well. Very different perspective, I haven't thought of that. Thanks for sharing!

Your photos of Wiesbaden made me homesick. I lived there from 1973 to 2002 teaching American Air Force and then Army "Brats." Wiesbaden is a very beautiful and special city. I hope to visit it again soon. Thank you for the visual visit now. Martha Eckhart
