Default Homage?

I guess one can see this as a homage to both Paul Abbot and Michael Nagel. Due to the architecture, of course, but also due to the square crop (Paul) and the graffiti (Michael). I have decided to leave the left edge of the building in the picture because it creates a disturbance/unease.

You honor me by your recognition of the power of disturbance and unease. I am proud to thus be put into the company of Paul and Michael.

Best regards,

Doug

But of course! This goes without saying. You are a grand master in those areas and anything pertaining to engineering.

Cem,

I do like the wall texture. More so your gestures to our colleagues! That we know enough to acknowledge their vision, (in our own work), is part of the unique allure of this small corner of the internet!

Hi Cem,

Thanks - I feel honored - I did not think that the street art thread is considered that significant.

I like it. The graffiti is more on the tag side of street art, but the colors fit well.

Best regards,
Michael

The street art thread is significant to me Michael. I enjoy seeing something new there every time. I have been shooting a lot of graffiti myself for a few years, perhaps I should share some of it later.
