"Some people become cops because they want to make the world a better place. Some people become vandals because they want to make the world a better looking place."

Even though Israel and I are ALWAYS driving around, looking for places to take photos, it's always hard to find a good graffiti wall in Edmonton. There aren't very many and the ones we do find, they're so hard to take night photos with or the area is just so small (especially with our camera lens - you basically have to stand a million miles away to fit anything in the picture!). Luckily, Israel spotted this gem and this isn't even the WHOLE gem, it was just so hard to fit the whole wall in the photo and we were having such a difficult night this night with the camera! We'll definitely have to come back and try again!
I'm not artistic whatsoever. It's a good thing Israel is though, he knows the right angles and spots and what looks good to take photos. He's also amazing at photoshop - you should check out some of his work on Instagram because he's really good at it, he's really good at music and he's just way more talented than me. The only artistic thing I can do is doodle and by doodling, I mean drawing stick figures and calling it a day. I'm terrible, I'm definitely a more book smart kind of person.
Maybe if I tried a little harder to be more artistic I could be but I highly doubt that. I can't even colour in the lines of a colouring book, so I mean .... yeah. I should just stick to being book smart.
Hopefully we can find some more of these hidden gems in Edmonton to use, they make great backdrops!
