Geezers! That could have come from Northern Ireland back in the 1970s. Very evocative. Well done, Shroom.

@MontereyJohn: Thx. Photos can be powerful when context is unknown.

Your wonderful shot displays the worst of the human race.....

@Susan: Well, the word is actually 'Hated' - you can see it painted down the building to the right. I covered the 'd' with the pole. It looks provocative but it's really just some minor vandalism by somebody tagging things with the word 'hated' for some reason. It's far more likely about aimless boredom than hate.
