The 52 Week Project: Week 2

I am so pleased! I have found some graffiti in Harpenden!

I don’t know what it says about me that I’ve been missing the scuzzy old painted walls and the illegible tags of Edinburgh, but I have. I don’t feel like I’ve got to the soul of a place until I’ve seen what its street artists and discontented youth are inclined to scribble across its blank surfaces.

So when I was wandering into town this week and my eye was caught by some black text stencilled on the wall of the wine store, I was thrilled. I ambled up for a closer look. And it was this:

Harpenden graffiti

Well.

It’s a start, I suppose…

  1. Errrr, the youths of Harpenden are obviously a heck of a lot posher than the youths of Edinburgh (and with Wester Hailes, that wouldn’t be difficult!)
    As far as rebellion goes, I’m not impressed. Far too neat and intelligentđŸ˜‰
