While I don't mind some street art, I detest graffiti. My first impressions of Paris as we entered on Eurostar was the appalling graffiti lining the railway line. Worse, it was in French and I could not read it, like I can read local graffiti, not. I have noticed even the lovely picturesque Lisbon is spoilt by graffiti.
In spite of the City of Phillip offering a free graffiti removal service, people can't even be bothered to use it. Perhaps as soon as it was removed, more would be added. I walked no more than a few steps to take these photos in Balaclava. Ugly work by ugly people.
