Holy Graffiti

holy graffiti

More graffiti spotted on our geocaching treks. This one was on a lonely tree by the edge of the water. I wonder what was going through the mind of the person who wrote this. It sounds like a declaration, not perhaps of indepedence, but of dependence. Perhaps I'm reading too much into this, but there seems to be a note of desparation here - it's the exclamation mark that makes me wonder ...

Bamboo graffiti

I also wonder about the state of mind of these people, who carved their names into a bamboo tree. Making your mark on the world is one thing, but carving up a tree seems rather a harsh way to do it. These were all over a bamboo grove: the photo above is spliced from three photos.

bamboos at botanic gardens in the trail bit? my friend R thought it was so cruel to do that to a tree and said she wouldn't mind inflicting the same on the arms of these people. haha.

These were at lower peirce. But yes, I think it's cruel as well. It's also pointless.
