Got back from Montevideo, Uruguay on Sunday afternoon.  Spent Monday and Tuesday recuperating/work/catching up with friends/watching Real Housewives.  Finally got around to editing the photos that were on my Nikon.

The street art in Montevideo is just amazing.  First of all, it’s effing everywhere.  It’s almost all extremely well done, and most of it doesn’t look officially sanctioned.  I ended up spending an entire afternoon just walking around the city following the graffiti to photograph it.  That was such an enjoyable way to wander around the Ciudad Vieja (Old City) and the Centro (downtown).

Here are my 21 favorite pieces:
