Show me pics of your bike with graffiti

Someone posted a picture of a bike recently with graffiti on the wall behind it. I don't remember who it was. I was out for a ride this week at took a pic of my bike at a local park and got the same thing. I bet a lot of you have such pictures. I thought it would be a fun thread.

These are in the same spot, a little over four years apart.





Not vintage, but much better graffiti.



Show me what you've got!

Most of my riding is out in the country, but I found this one. Beta Bridge at UVA.

Terminal 5 is on the other side of Harbor Island, isn't it? This is across the road from T Mobile park, next to the US Coastguard Terminal.
