Graffitied wall

THEME DAY: LINES • I've featured Bookay-ukay, the used-books store near our home, a couple of times, during their opening day and about two months after that. This is the first time I'm showing their nuclear green, graffiti-as-you-will wall. Most of the art is line drawings but a few photographs have made their way onto it. And if you can't find a book that interests you, you just might find some lines of text here that will.

It's fun seeing the different ways CDP bloggers interpret the month's theme. Some are literal, some artistic, some witty, some downright cheeky. Click here to view thumbnails for all participants.

Love your interpretation. I was so tempted myself by a 'books' theme. Such a fascinating set of drawings here and colours.

This is a unique interpretation of the theme day post, Hilda.

This is not just a graffiti, but a very nice street art. I LOVE it!

How wonderful to see what other people come up with when you give them a theme to talk about.
Very clever! I would never think of that!
Very nice work too. I particularly like the scary fish next to the weird head/skull

Your picture made me want to clap in time with the music! Perhaps it was the green, or the drawings themselves, I don't know... Great stuff!

Getting to your site a little late, but what a great "lines" photo! You are right, the interpretations of lines around the world has made this one of my favorite theme days.

Magulo pero ok, Are they posting ads too?

Yours is one of the most intriguing. From the lateral to the literal but I think image of leafleted lines is very original.
