What A Load Of Rubbish

What A Load Of Rubbish, originally uploaded by Paris Set Me Free.

BONUS: For Street Photography Fans!

What a load of rubbish, you might be thinking, if you're not a fan of street culture. And you wouldn't be far wrong.

It is indeed a load of Rubbish. Rubbish the graffiti artist, that is to say. He's one, along with Fred le Chevalier and Diamant, who are becoming more and more a part of the Parisian street art landscape at the moment.

This was taken on an abortive stroll around the 11th arrondissement of Paris; an area with a lot to offer but much of it sneakily hidden away behind digicode doors, especially on Sundays (the day of our walk, naturally).

The incessant and worsening drizzle didn't help our experience, and after a couple of desperate detours by a church where the enigmatic Louis XVII (wha.. who?) may or may not have been buried as the 'infant from the Temple dungeon', and the graffiti you see above, we hit a welcome cafe and called it a day.

Which was a shame as there are countless passages and hidden courtyards to explore when the weather and the day is right.

Never mind all that, these graffiti guys are starting to awaken the artist's itch which makes me want to get out there and start sticking myself. You can see here and here that I'm getting some stuff ready, just waiting for the right moment to strike...

Until then, which I'll surely share with you, I'll leave you with half a guy and a drainpipe, and more than enough information to find him for yourself if you feel so inclined.

And why not...
