Art IS Freedom…

…and I am happy to exercise that freedom…in Photoshop (TM), of course!
I took this shot while walking around one day recently.  For the five and a half years I have lived in this neighborhood, one thing has really disgusted me:  the condition of the CTA underpasses.  CTA let them go for so many years, and it is only in the past several years that these northernmost underpasses are being repaired.  This one is certainly due for some heavy work, isn’t it?

I must admit, being a life-long artist…I do like the graffiti!

Graffiti…

…with a legible, even inspiring, message.  Quite unusual, don’t you think?
