Would you take this photo?

Should a photographer pass the most commonplace element in the “landscape” and not find something with which to make an image? Here is a bit of graffiti on a brick wall that I found on my recent photowalk. In the bucolic atmosphere of Central Park, this opportunity could easily have been passed by.

Is this image worthy of my time? It is out of place and discordant and it mares the scenery. I wonder if anyone else in our group thought it worthy of their time. It could be a tag or just a local artist expressing himself. I like the question mark – an existential gang member perhaps questioning his existance. So what do you think?
