Anyone with a marker and a bit of gumption can leave their mark almost anywhere but most of us don’t. What makes some people write? The stupid and/or juvenile scrawls I can do without but I like encountering words that make me smile or make me think. Below is a small collection that I have seen in the past week. Some are stupid and some are witty, but all are the result of someone’s thoughts and actions.
below: Keep it civil; keep it underground.
below: “MyFace – I vote for a date with you! Currently searching for my 2017 Valentine.”
Brought to you (maybe) by someone called James and seen around Ryerson University.
below: What is more tempting than a blank wall? If a sign requests you not to paint on the wall and you draw on it with marker, have you disobeyed the request?
below: These posters on the wood hoardings have been up for many months now. Someone has written “communist garbage” on one of the posters. I’m not sure of the ideology, but if you believe in the freedom of movement are you really a communist? The Soviet government certainly didn’t allow it.
below: Let’s call this photo ‘Garage Heavy Metal in the Bike Lane’.
I’m not sure if this is a list of good things? or bad things? Or maybe some sort of poetry?
What does Elizabeth May have in common with Lucy DeCoutere? Or the TD CEO with Desmond Cole?
below: “Do not place any materials here”….. just a lot of words instead.
A few words about someone called Sarah.
below: “Drink coca-cola get fat”. Probably not what Coke intended!?
below: “I use stickers because I’m too afraid of getting caught to spray”, wabishabby
