Yesterday (September 8th) I had an interview in downtown Boston. I parked my car, went, and returned here. I brought my camera along with me just in case there was anything interesting, and at the corner where I left my car I found this. It was funny to me that I should find it while coming back from a meeting specifically centered around following my dreams.
For you who might be unfamiliar, this is a "piece" (painting? graffiti? illustration?) by street artist Banksy. Look him up and check out other examples of his work: controversial but always interesting.

This photo is HDR, taken with my Nikon D5000 and merged in photoshop: iso-200, f/5.6, exposures were 1/50, 1/100, 1/200.

    This is awesome. I love your choice to make it black and white, too! It really fits it. Great work!

    Thanks everyone for the kind words, though I just want to note that there is a hint of color. You can notice it most in the parking sign and trash can, both of which are blue. I didn't specifically leave those, they were just the more saturated bits in the photo.
