Express Yourself (WPC)
Being the lady I am I won’t repeat what I said when I initially read this week’s prompt, Express Yourself, from the Daily Post, lol. 🙂 However, as time went on I calmed down and before I knew it, had many images come to mind.
Finally I selected this, as the motivation behind this graffiti still baffles me as to
a) how, and b) why this person chose to express themselves here.
You see, here, is on a small rock face on an island’s edge outside Ketchikan, Alaska. Although the rock-face provides a natural canvas for this graffiti, there’s no easy path to it as it’s on the side of cliff, albeit not a very large cliff, but still not somewhere you just “happen” upon.
Yes, some graffiti is quite good and yes, in the right places is quite effective but here in what seems the middle of nowhere, and the middle of mother nature’s true beauty, it appears quite sad really.
It certainly wasn’t “fresh“, appearing to be quite faded, but as to completely disappearing, well… “mum, how much longer?”
