Playing favourites: Nemesis

By mrswoolybill
Batman faces the final curtain...
Previously I've managed to resist the lockdown urge to resurrect old shots. But I have been working on a project that has sent me to the back-up hard drives, and there are pictures that I am deeply attached to from years long ago. So I will be uploading an occasional series, all reworked.
This is from the Ouseburn. The graffiti wall beside the Tyne Bar used to attract some seriously good work (now it's largely mindless tagging on an epic scale). But however good it was, it was methodically painted over every six weeks or so, to make room for the next batch.
Annoyingly, I cannot track down the full size original file, I've worked on a reduced version.
Thanks for looking,
Moira

What a spoilsport! Good capture, if a bit gaudy cover-up. I am sure, what was there before, is better than the end result.

Batman doesn't look too happy that he's about to get painted over! 😳 You were in the right place and just the right time too, Moira 😃👍
