Overpass Graffiti Downtown
This is right where the 10 meets the 101, in the heart of downtown Los Angeles. The thing you have to realize is that somebody physically painted that. The area isn't tall enough for a person to stand in, and I took the shot from the freeway below. Whoever painted this was perching in there like a monkey over a height that would have injured them severely, and very possibly killed them, if they had fallen.
There's no money in graffiti. There's nothing but the ego trip of people seeing your work, and the pleasure of doing it. Somebody spent a bunch of time in life-threatening danger for this.
There is graffiti like this all over the city.
