Graffiti Rules! (Part 3)
I was tipped off by my boy Eddie B to this alley spot off of the 5 and Atlantic in the City of Commerce. The story is that a graffiti crew did a sick piece in the alley, and the residents and businesses adjoining the alley liked the looks of it and have since allowed crews to decorate both sides of the 2 block alley. What's more, in a part of town that is literally destroyed by crappy tags done by first-time spray paint users, these incredible walls seem to hold up with relatively minimal vandalism for quite a while.

I was fortunate enough to be shooting these photos on a day when ATLAS and MIDZT from CBS were on set piecing a 40' section of the alley.
