Think it's because graffiti just screams urban. :?: Does to me anyway. :wink:

I like number 2 Rumble. :)

Exactly, Rado's is doing it for me. Nowt wrong with graffiti but sticking a mountain bike next to some is a bit incongruous and unimaginative. Apologies to all MacRetro that have done so :oops:

Ah yes, I understand. But 'different' doesn't always equal 'winner'.
We have seen that illustrated perfectly on here before. The winner may well be similar to any of a number of other photos entered. And the winner this month could well have some graffiti in it. So Rumble should not be discouraged from entering just because of the ubiquity of the various delinquent youths artistic endeavors. :wink:

All IMHO obviously. :lol:

I do agree it's not imaginative, I was just riding by and the urban POTM popped into my head so fired off a couple of photaes. They're only taken on my phone anyway so i've no illusions of contending for the win.
