48 of 365 for 2009 “Not Your Mother Tongue”

"Not Your Mother Tongue"

Yeah, I don’t know what this says. Translation please?

This gang language is quite artistic sometimes, I just wish they would be less destructive with their art. It is maddening to see this on the sides of buildings, bridges and whatever else and to think of what it will cost the owner to clean up. I wonder if this is rival gangs writing over each others words.

  1. Your guess is better than mine, but I love the bright colors – would make a great grunge background for scrapping!

  2. Nice picture and unique take on the theme. Isn’t it amazing how good some grafitti is? Too bad these artists don’t put it to good use!

    I’ve always thought the same thing. Too bad their talents haven’t been channeled into a productive use. If they had been, they would be a blessing to society, in general, and not a force of destruction as they are now.

    This is a terrific take on this theme. I’ve been pondering how to use this theme and have not been able to come up with a clue. You did good.

  4. Very colorful and interesting take on the theme.

  5. Great graffiti shot. The big rivets add a lot of interest…

  6. hmmm…I don’t speak I’ve got notin better to do than ruin someone’s property…sorry but great shot!

  7. Fantastic shot – great colors. The rivets add a nice punctuation. Too bad it has to be destructive in it’s “artform”.

  8. I agree that the graffiti can be beautiful but is so destructive. Nice shot.
