Surviving Graffiti

Ho visto occhi di donna guardare la corrida, I saw woman's eyes watching a bullfight, graffiti with a bicycle, Livorno Behind the bicycle, on the crumbling plaster: “Ho visto occhi di donna guardare la corrida” (I saw woman's eyes watching a bullfight).

I am so glad the portal is mack. Now I can remember all the blogs I need to visit.

This is a marvelous image. The graffiti is like a bit of Italian haiku. The viewer could slip away on the bicycle and lose contact with that moment.

A bicycle always catches my eye! The graffiti serves as a colorful background.

On a road trip and finally am in a place with wifi, so I am temporary back to enjoy your blog!!

I still don't like graffiti. But I must say this makes a lovely photo though.

Ha! It reminds me of the remains of ancient frescoes.

I'd remove the graffiti if I could, although the words sounds poetic.

Looks like the bicycle is part of the wall graffiti.
