Look! Thereâ€™s a fight going on down the street. Thatâ€™s what this sign seems to be saying. And itâ€™s true. Thereâ€™s a constant struggle for territory going on in the streets and almost every sign, symbol, graphic and graffiti marked on the roads and sidewalks is evidence of this struggle.
I made a video (actually, a photo compilation) on this topic last year. Called Street Writing, itâ€™s been published in the on-line Interdisciplinary Themes Journal. Turn your sound on while you watch.

The â€˜Look fightâ€™ photograph was taken several years ago in Harris Street, Ultimo (Sydney). Iâ€™m delighted to say itâ€™s been added as a guest photo on the â€˜Submissionsâ€™ page of one of my favourite websites, Misplaced Manhole Covers.
