Travel Theme: Walls

Ailsa over at Where’s My Backpack has come up with an interesting travel theme this week: Walls. Click here to see what everyone else has come up with.

I’m always taking photos of walls, usually because of the textures. A lot of walls catch my attention for another reason, though – the graffiti painted on them. Here are a couple of my favourites.

I photographed this wall at the highest point in Germany, on top of the Zugspitze at Garmisch-Partenkirchen. I didn’t find out why the graffiti was there or what it meant, and it’s not the best example, but it was the location and the fact that it has been preserved while the rest of the building has been renovated that attracted me to it.

And some great examples of wall art in Pisa, Italy.

    1. No I’ve never been to Chile but it looks incredible. Thanks for introducing me to this fantastic wall art, I’m definitely going to add it to my list of places I want to visit. I wish I was able to do wall art myself, but unfortunately as an animator I’m far more used to working on a small scale – the big scale projects just don’t seem to work for me!
