“This picture was taken at 1st street and Anderson which is roughly still in Boyle Heights before the bridge into Downtown Los Angeles. Growing up, I would see graffiti everywhere. It was amazing to me how these ‘taggers’ would risk their life and freedom just to make sure you knew they were there.

“As I grew older and immersed myself into the graffiti culture, I started to understand the importance of walls and alleyways just like this one. This particular alleyway did bring back fond memories of both growing up and what living in 1990s Los Angeles used to be.” –Raymond Miranda, used with permission from Flickr
