Graffiti in Florence, Italy. Photographed by Maurizio RiccioDecoding Life 3-14

This week's Weekly Photo Challenge at The Daily post at wordpress.com is "Foreign"

You could be traveling anywhere in the world, and even if you don't understand the language, the signs around you follow similar conventions. Looking for familiar cues, you can more or less guess the information presented to you.


But than you turn a corner, go down a less traveled street and suddenly you are in a different world. You look up, and scribbled on the walls you see a visual language that is indecipherable. There is no travel or translation guide that can help to understand. Those will be the times you will feel really foreign, even in your own town. More graffiti here. Pictured above, graffiti in Florence, Italy and below, in Santa Fé, New Mexico.

That's true, seeing graffiti over walls carries you into another dimension, and I always love to decipher them!
