XXXI- More of the Streets

XXXI - More of the Streets of Rio

Like many towns, all over the world, there is much graffiti on the streets. And, most of it was very impressive.

Some examples were large:

It is on some very attractive buildings.

On the walls of small streets.

And on doors.

Seeing the graffiti on some of the old buildings may strike some of those looking at my photos as blasphemy. I, for one, appreciate architecture of all types - some more than others. Being from South Carolina and having lived in Charleston, I both love and enjoy the older, more historic buildings. I find different styles fascinating. It gets lost in translation, but when on the streets in old Rio, the graffiti becomes part of the beauty. I guess one has to be there to understand.
