Guerilla Gardening


I don’t generally photograph graffiti, especially when the ugliness of it is offensive in itself. True this garage wall was hardly a thing of beauty but it has well-laid courses of brick and does its job.

The scribble is hardly well-crafted, but it would be time-consuming and silly to remove it. No sooner was the door repainted than the felt-tip pens were out again.

My attempt at an answer is to help nature to take its course. An ivy cutting poked between the bricks and the asphalt has begun climbing the wall. Let’s see where we are come September.
