I am wondering if I should make this my submission to the Zen challenge, as my existing image, White asleep is not getting very good response :-( althougth I rather like it. If you have any thoughts on this, would be appreciated.

Three verticle black strokes 川 make up the Chinese character for "river".

The other character 乌 means "dark" or "black" and the phrase can mean "black river" or "empty river".

"Black River" is a part of a huge graffiti at Haji Lane, next to Arab Street.

This is in a part of Singapore called Kampong Glam, which is fast developing as a sort of Bohemian village with trendy Middle Eastern restaurants and cafes. It is one of the few places in clinical Singapore where graffiti is not only allowed, but encouraged.

    BTW: Can all of you see the three black vertical strokes? I saw this pix at an internet cafe and it was almost totally black, couldn't see anything :(
