This stone is called The Red Stone. Itīs said it first was colored red by the blood of a Swedish soldier in the defense of Gothenburg against the Danes back in history.
It regularly is painted red by the city, but it donīt stay that way very long.
It changes shape almost twice a week

Well, I did get three today, but the quality is not good. I shot them out the window of my car while driving...I had to straighten and crop, but I did get them...

This one I shot while going about 50 MPH out the left side of my window.



This one I shot while waiting for the light to turn green.


This one I shot through my windshield while waiting in traffic..

Love the use of the black and white. It gives it that seedy look about it.

OK, I'll put a few in but you'll have to forgive me, they are not Pentax images. These were taken in 2005 in Montreal P.Q.

Wow, some really excellent street art, these are fun to photograph. And seemingly a global phenomenon.













These are all inside an old abandoned pump house, located in the South Mountain Reservation in NJ. Well, the third pic is the entrance. It was cold, I was out shooting icicles, and had the 'wrong' lens with me - the DA 70. A bit too long for the distances inside the building.

excellent nesster and I agree. I have been looking at it and am pleasantly surprised at how talented these folks are. I have a couple of areas picked out to shoot this coming weekend. I am going to head out about 5;00 to get some good light..
