Graffiti Vulture by Mark Ramstead
Clear

I found this under the freeway near my house. I really like this and I juiced it up a bit for posterity.

For discussions sake, have I ripped this artist off?
Have I glamorized a criminal act?
Is it art? Is it a tag?

    OMG..wow…..I just finished working on two vulture photos this week and posted them up. I hardly see vulture shots. This shot is nice and colorful. Great find and great eye!

    Its really cool-
    I’d say art def, it depends for me whether graffiti art adds or takes away to the area it occupys- This looks like its covered up some general defacing (a public service I would say in this instance).
    By its nature this sort of art is in the public domain, so to enhance it and present it yourself is not a rip off in my eyes.
    Just my humble opinions tho xxxxx
    Thanks for sharing !

  • It appears that this area is actually cleaned up by the artists. They just paint over everything and start again. This one is so good it actually makes me wonder I have missed down there…

    If its ever changing as a kind of “work space” better to catch it and share it while you can- great idea x
