Writers on the Storm

Maybe it’s the heat. Maybe it’s the turmoil in the world. Or, maybe I’m just tuned in to it, but there seems to be a storm of graffiti in Seattle. And, right behind the writers? Building maintenance if the building is occupied, or demolition if the building is abandoned. 

A good site for deciphering the tags is the Cat Branchman, kozemchuk flickr stream.

Alley Writing: These three images were taken in an alley between 8th Avenue N and 9th Avenue N and Aloha Street and Valley Street.

 

Cleaning Graffiti: No, this isn’t someone writing on the wall. He is cleaning it. It shows a member of building maintenance removing graffiti on the side of Hotel Max in downtown.
