iPhone Friday – A Little Street Art

A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of meeting up with photographer Mike Murphy who was in Toronto on business. Between both of our schedules it was a bit of challenge to meet up but on his second to last day we managed to meet for an hour during lunch. So what do two photographers do during a short meet…grab a quick coffee at Starbuck’s and head over to graffiti alley to shoot some awesome street art. I didn’t have my DSLR with me that day but I did manage to take some shots with my iPhone. Actually I took so many that I will probably post some more images of this little excursion next week.

    Graffiti is art, so is photographing it. Nice perspectives and choices.

  7. The photo with the artist is great – you so rarely get that with this type of picture – and I love those rabbits in the first shot.

  8. There’s some serious talent displayed in that alley – the graffiti artists and both the artists with the cameras! Good stuff Edith!

    • Thanks Gracie. I was very excited that he was there because I agree watching these artists work is fascinating. I asked permission to take his picture and he agreed so I was even more thrilled.

  18. Great to see this artwork abound. It needs to be encouraged – perhaps brought into the mainstream. It is taggers who give street art a bad reputation.
