Vamp It Up

These are from my photo archives and were taken way back in 2011 when a street-art competition was taking place in the motorway underpasses between Hulme and central Manchester.

I wish I could paint that well on a piece of paper, never mind on a tiled wall with a spray can. Major respect to the artists. If any one knows who any of them are, please let me know.

Obviously it stands to sense you should try to avoid taking photo’s with a nice camera in a secluded area (like a tunnel!). If you do though, take someone with you to act as look out.

      Cheers doll! It’s very War Of The Worlds isn’t it. I just point and shoot, although today I deliberately included the scenery around the art to give it some context x

      Was a long time ago but great street-art is usually replaced by other great-street art in places like this – I hope! Let me know what’s there now and be safe dude.

      I know right! It was in the underpass under the Mancunian Way next Princess Parkway Manchester, Uk. Not sure what’s there now though.
