Stencil art

I took this and the following street-art photos in this post for an intended college project, having been inspired by some very clever stencil-art I'd seen around town. Unfortunately, when I went out with my camera to photograph some of the best examples I'd seen, the powers-that-be had already sent their minions around to scrub them off. Bloody philistines!
