Where does one go to look at graf these days?

Recommended Posts

So this place is a shadow of what it used to be for looking at graffiti. Threads like Burners and Style, MSK thread, graffuturism, etc. etc. were the best place to go for new pics two years or so ago, now they are a thing of the past.

 

I still like to look at new and old stuff but think that instagram sucks for looking at pics. I don't have a 15 inch screen to look at 7 inch pics and I see a fundamental contradiction between a visual medium and reduced picture size. So, anyone know of any good blogs that are updated regularly or anything that can account for what brickslayers used to be here? Please list anything you can mention - and yes, I know this is non-graff but hey, between CH0 and one or two freight threads, I don't think anything happens in any other sections of this website!

 

Cheerio!

Yeah, people got enslaved by their mini screens of social media and I agree, when you take nice, quality photos it's kind of pointless to view them in such small fashion, quality and details are lost. I also feel that Raven, and to a lesser extent the mods, don't take advantage of who they know and getting some of those people to post or contribute. And of course, the log-in issues before. Couldn't of come at a worse time as people were turning to smart phones/social media and then more recent hiccups in trying to bring the site back.

 

Kind of feel like graf is coming back to where if you want to see some, take a walk.

Yeah, you're probably right. However living in a small town without a train line really constrains what I can find out there IRL. Probably explains why I look at it online so much.

even most benchers find it's not worth their time to be an oontzer when they can make any number of social media accounts and share their shit exactly how and with whom they want to

 

people i know don't have any desire to go bench, host photos, make threads etc etc.

Yea I post local stuff to Instagram but I hate the format. I'm just lazy and never upload them anywhere. I never really got into flickr,

 

Those are great links donald

most of the graffiti i like sucks when it's compressed down to instagram size. pieces got huge and our photos of them have never been smaller. the world is funny.

 

i am out and about in the real world way more now. when i take photos i put them on flickr. some faves:
