Graffiti Alley in Baltimore, Maryland

Every day, on my way to work, I pass by this alley. This alley is constantly changing, every day of every week there is something new. This particular scene got my attention and I only had a couple of day before the new art made its way into the alley. Today, this particular art is gone, hidden behind many layers of fresh paint not to be seen again, except in my photo where it will outlive the city, the canvas.
