St3v3, good catch and even nicer creativity on the part of the artist.

Somewhat reminds me of Bansky.

You beat me to it.
I am not a big fan of the typical graffiti 'tags' as I don't consider that art under any semblance of the term. Murals and other artistically rendered art, such as Banksy's, I definitely appreciate even if it does encroach on vandalism.
I am a fan of Banksy and those who do similar work and have been unofficially following his 'career' in the media. The most recent being the collecting and selling of his work without compensation to the artist for such. In fairness, it's hard to recompense someone who retains anonymity as a way of life... then, only if that anonymity is real and not a fabricated aspect of his brand. Only he knows, I suppose.

This image definitely has a Banksy feel with its strong political message and the use of stencil art mixed with a more casual spray painted motif. What this lack, as a Banksy, is the tongue-in-cheek humor he is so known for. A great piece, nonetheless.

You have definitely been on a roll with great street shots that really resonate even with no humans around. This is another - terrific find, wonderful current and pertinent art we can easily relate to. You captured it well, and processing is perfect. I like the pano crop for it. Very very cool.

Steve, while what you do is ok, I think there are better places than the street to look for Love --

but seriously who would have thought to find those letters there in that word. I like the message and how he made us see those letters and his message. Thanks for sharing!
