PDP #206: A Common Canvas

Graffiti is a mixed bag. While it's often persecuted by governments and property owners as a scourge or a precursor of decay, it can also bring life to dead concrete as a kind of vigilante art. The supports of the Bathurst Street Bridge over the Cedarvale Ravine are well done up with graffiti tags along its lower edges - and it's a shame that it's just graffiti tags, and only at that low level. Someone with the proper equipment and enough paint could make a hell a scene on a blank canvas like the one I've photographed here.
