[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Wallarts or graffitis are one of my favorite themes.
Sometimes you can meet quite artisanal and phantasy-rich samples.
Like those two on the huge iron doors of an olf firehouse garrage in Kadikoy, on the Asian Part of Istanbul.
The artist (or artists) created this unique artworks.
It's worth to enlarge it on the screen and study all the details, the hidden beauties.

Hello Mesut,
Excellent capture of this brightly coloured graffiti. The artist or artists certainly have a very vivid imagination. I like the presence of the telephone 'kiosk' which serves as a dividing line between the two. Very good technical realisation on your part.

Bonjour, cher ami Mesut,
Les rideaux de fer se sont transformés en toile géante pour graffeurs amateurs !
Cela donne de la couleur, mais il faut aimer le style !
Bonne prise de vue reflétant la vie quotidienne.

Merhaba Mesut,

I am ambivalent about such art work.
Yes, it can be attractive but when accompanied by scrawled lettering and superimposed upon other graffiti, for me, it loses some of its appeal I am in favour of graffiti walls, where artists are encouraged to come and express themselves, rather then defacing old, attractive buildings.

Lesson over - you have taken an excellent, sharp photograph of the graffiti, very carefully composed and with bright, attarctive colours.

Have a good day,
Bev :-)

Hello Mesut,
The bug and the head are very nicely painted, like real artists were here. Unfortunately these clever paintings are disturbed by the ugly scribbles by less talented persons. But the real artists found a great place for the paintings. They are perfectly framed by the elements of the wall.
Kind regards,
PS Maybe later today you reach your great goal. ;-)

Bonjour Mesut,

Je constate que tu as tendance à faire comme moi et tenter d'éviter les passants sur le trottoir. J'imagine la période d'attente. Mais c'est tout de même très beau et original.



Hello Mesut,

good image of this street art, I like the composition with the two graffitis and the phone cabin in the middle, well seen,

Best regards,

Hello Mesut,
Good capture of these two large red graffiti works of art, the bug and the man's head. Their colours stand out so well from the background. The bluish phone booth is nicely placed in the centre.

Hello Mesut,
What an interesting mix of images. That giant bug is very creepy! The colors are very vibrant, and I like the old pay phone in the middle, too. It also has a nice blue color. This kind of urban grit appeals to me.
