Photograph taken 25 March 2012.

I recently came across this image in my archives.  I always thought it was an interesting image and not sure why it wasn’t published back when it photographed.  The irregular light pattern was created by reflected sunlight from windows opposite the artwork.  Created by Kid Acne in 2012 the building on which this was painted has long since been demolished.
