Kilroy Was Here

By ChiliMan
Or Chad. Depending on which side of the pond you’re from. I’m from neither side but I first got to know this guy as Kilroy. You know the one…that graffiti guy peeking over the wall?

I didn’t see him when I took the pic, though. It was a sunny day and everything looked photographable. A blue bus was to my left at a traffic light. This little hatch on its side caught my eye (not physically, mind you…ouch!). So down went the window and zoom went the Ixus.

Only at home did I notice the sideways Kilroy! (sideways in the original shot in V2)

I love this sorta ‘later-on-the-computer’ surprise Grin

Oh yes - the complete Kilroy. Wasn't he related to SNAFU? or even responsible for it Blush
A brilliant example of observation, or in this case perhaps second sight Grin

Lovely blue. I must admit that I would never thought of photographing this so it just goes to show how much better your photographic eye is than mine. Wink Smile

Lovely colour blue.
Great capture....
