That the look of a lot of buildings in Oporto [Portugal] Lots of graffiti, which generally spoil the walls but in this occasion enhance it, to my view.
Thank you all for your votes and comments, well apreciate.

Three great photos Elena ! V1 is a good choice as the main photo ! In South Africa there are a concerted effort to use gifted grafiti artists to paint the walls with good art works in order to try and beautify the derelict buildings Smile

Well spotted and captured Elena, well executed graffiti can give old buildings a lift , not sure in this case though.

I really love this Elena. They're all great but V1 is my favourite. So well framed. Don

It can give a lift to run down areas but this does like a prime candidate for urban regeneration.

Porto is full of grot and graffiti.A sad reminder of the state of affairs and yet it is a town full of intriguing architecture.

I bought a book the other week Graffiti in world city's 700 full size photo's of the most splendid Graffiti ever!, the book is tremendous in weight but it shows how this sort of thing can be an improvement. I personally feel it should be encouraged in certain places but! it has to be acceptable work to view in every day life. Your photo's are fine but the Graffiti is sub standard, a like from me and vote as these portray a sign of the times, regards Leon.GrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrin
