    Beautiful image. I like that we have both the big words of the graffiti on the wall, and the small words on the sheet. The energy of the artist is wonderful.

    I luv your photos. They are always very expressive and has something special about them. Looking at the photos on your blog has sharpened my eye and now I tend to look at people in a more "total look" kind of way.

    Love that this picture is more than fashion: it's art.
    Love that the subject seems unaware of you taking his photo.
    Love the juxtaposition of the large text and the small.
    Love the black & white picture of a black guy writing on white paper.
    Love the energy of art in the making.

    Generally, I just love this picture. I keep coming back to it.

    Such a striking image. It makes you want to know more. Art often leaves one with questions not answers. This photo is elevated to that place.

    i like taking photos of people when they are so immersed in what they are doing, they dont notice you… Like when a photographer is shooting..

  64. Mery

    October 30, 2010 at 9:06 am

    So, if fashion is about passion and self-expression then this man has got both.
    Also I noticed the functionality of his clothing – jeans inside boots so they won't get dirty, gloves in back pockets, hair covered by a hat, long sleeves for more comfortable painting? :)

  65. Eryl

    October 30, 2010 at 9:47 am

    Oh my, he seems to be so immersed: completely in his zone. The texture of the wall is wonderful, especially set alongside the texture of his sweater.
