Eye spy...

There is a lot of graffiti in this here neighborhood. I like most of it  because it's more artistic than ugly scribbles of someone's "tag". Some of it reminds me of the British graffiti artist Banksy - who uses a lot of stencil techniques to comment on political and social issues. His art can be found throughout the world and we even have a couple here in New Orleans not far from where we live! side note: I highly recommend seeing Banksy's  "Exit Through The Gift Shop" - awesome movie about graffiti art

 New Orleans Banksy:

I love the one below. Although some fool painted over most of it except for the grocery cart.
