Went to Northern State to see what I can find as far as graffiti goes…sigh. So either the graffiti artists decided to take this quarter off or, they already cleaned up the place! Only found a few pieces left. About the title, it totally reminded me of a Pokemon character called Rapidash (and my girls agree…yay, dad was paying attention)!

I decided to play around with a black and white version of this image, while the colour is good it just screamed to me to be converted, have some noise added…have a little film noir going. What are your thoughts, black and white or colour?

  1. It’s a deer or springbok (David, where do springboks roam the open veld?). There is a second horn you can see the tip of it to the right. Check out pictures of the springbok and you will see I am right. I still prefer color. B&W is so passe’ if you are old enough to have lived during the nothing but B&W era.

  2. I guess I’ll go with the crowd. The B&W seems darker (duh) and more serious. It’s even a little, well, scary-looking. The color…not scary at all, more playful.

    • As Cait would say…”I know right…”! Sigh, only 12 and sounding older…how are we going to survive this!!

      Well, at least the unicorn is breathing fire, that’s a plus. 😛 Great to see you around again Morgan, loving your images!

  3. Black and white for me. One thing I like about it is that the left side does not end in a corner – it seems to carry on into the darkness which is to my way of viewing an improvement. And generally fewer distractions for the eye – like that yellow paint.
