Unexpected graffiti findings while cruising down the streets of Los Angeles – you never know what you’ll run into.
I feel so blessed to be living in a city full of graffiti art, and one of my favorite things to do on a warm, sunny day in LA is to go hunt for them – especially the ones hiding in a back alley that I’ve never seen before – so that’s what I did!
As I was cruising down Spring Street, past the Los Angeles Historic State Park, the area started to become deserted so I decided to turn around. Just as I was about to bust a U, I was suddenly surrounded by a bunch of amazing graffiti art that was so colorful that I had to park my car and snap away.
It’s so exciting to discover art where you least expect it. I can’t wait to go on another hunt for graffiti – any suggestions on where to go?
