Willym- I'm so proud of Jessica and the kids I could bust!

Secret Agent Woman- I know what you mean..We're constantly dealing with ridiculous 'tags' at our housing units,and even the kind of work in these photos would not be tolerated..I'm not sure what to think about that.

Sage- Thanks doll!..Maybe your scooter gang can go on a field trip. :)

Thinker- My daughter's friend,who shall remain nameless(Johnny),lent his camera and expertise to the project...This pleases me.

Yellerdawg- I know I have a small amount of bias,but DAMM impressive for a 12 year old! :)

oops. I just had to refresh the page. Wow, Sling, you might have missed a calling. You edit like a dream. Very very nice!! Great GREAT collaborators, too! I do like good graffiti and it looks like they found it all. Thanks so much.

That really was very cool. You have talented grandkids and the editing shows off their talent. I hope to see some more of this stuff. Excellent!

Finally. Some of the most beautiful forms of this art are on the underpass walls of the 10 Fwy. Sadly right in the middle of some of the pieces are tags...not art at all. Amazing talent you have sling...really amazing. Photography might be a "hobby" but you have missed your calling me thinks. Having lived near, having to travel through and for several years nursing the poorest of the poor in LA your grandchildren were brave to walk the streets of L.A.

Booda Babe- You're funny! :)
Glad you enjoyed it...Much of the editing credit goes to a very user friendly program.

Mom- Tyler and Jessica are getting some good direction from their friend Johnny,so I imagine there will be more fine photos ahead.

Miss HP- Thanks kid!.I was pleased with the end result.

Rosie- I've got some pretty street smart kids..I knew where they were going,and had no doubt they would carry themselves well.

Sling that was just beautiful...it bought tears to my eyes...it may be called the City of Angels but those beautiful kiddies are the real angels.

Thats real art for the people as well..to do it and pour heart into it knowing its not there for long...thats art - like playing a piece of music knowing its gone into the air as soon as you play it...
You made my day with this.
