The story behind the image

I can’t remember where I found this in Munich, but the second I saw it, I knew I had to take a picture. Some fool (?!) had sprayed the words ‘copy’ and ‘paste’ on the walls of several houses in Munich. The afternoon sun was casting long shadows already, highlighting the texture of the wall. I found the typography and the restricted color set attractive.

While I am trying to avoid copy & paste tasks whenever I can, sometimes the feature comes handy. And then I think about this shot. It’s a fun shot, for sure, but still makes me smile.
