This is quite possibly one of the funniest and most entertaining websites that I've seen in my 10 years or so on the Internet. The sheer intelligence used in creating a site cataloguing pictures like this is awesome.

First up, anyone who hears about this website laughs. Why? Because what person in their right minds would even consider pictures of walls to be entertaining or even interesting? I too was a non believer before I clicked on the website. Then the time came, and suddenly I was transported into a world where everything just seemed so real and you couldn't wait to click on the next image to see what it was.
==
What is it?
========

Err it's pictures of walls...with stuff on!

They've been submitted by fans from around the world, and there are some really startling and poignant photos of things that people have written here.
=============
Who runs the collection?
===================

It's hard to see who's in charge of the website exactly. Closer inspection of their associate website would suggest that it's a group of the leading street artists called "Pictures On Walls" or POW for short.

They actually seem to offer a large collection of very good street art from their website too, which is well worth a look at.
===========================
Why is picturesofwalls.com worth visiting?
=================================

Because it manages to encompass the whit, the humour, the intelligence(or lack of) and the life of many people around the world, just through simple pictures of messages that they have written on walls.

Some of the pictures like the odd U bend drain pipe with "What is this for?" written next to it, will have you in stitches.

Other pictures which contain a fair amount of profanity and thus cannot be reproduced here, really make you dig deeper. They make you wonder exactly what the person who wrote the text was thinking and what they were going through. It is all too easy to have a very deep outlook on each picture.

==================
How often is the site updated?
========================

The claim is that the site is updated (almost) weekly. This is great, as this is one site where constantly updated content is a necessity.

I tend to visit the website once or twice a month and am always pleased and suprised at the new photos that I find there. There is clearly a very active fan following around the world who are always on the lookout for new photos that they can send in.

==================
Can I send my own photos in?
========================

Yes, there is a submit button on the website, and as a loyal reader of the site, I urge you to send any photos you find in! The more of these pictures that there are in the world the better.
==
Summary
========

Well here we are. I'm hoping that you'll now have a better understanding of what this website is about and hopefully how you should look further than the fact that this is just a website containing photos of walls.

A lot of fun can be had looking through these photos, especially laughing at some of the spelling!!!

Enjoy and please let me know if you ever submit some photos that you have found yourself!
