The Grim Reaper

There is an epidemic of graffiti in Edinburgh at the moment. No wall or surface in the city centre is immune from gaudy scribbling. It is sickening to see ancient stone walls defaced by mindless gang names or rude images. Whereas painted brick work can be covered up by a fresh coat of paint, these stone walls will bear their scars forever.

This particular image I found on the boundary wall of the Grange cemetery, in the narrow pedestrian lane beside it. At least it is not as public as some and seems to have a cheeky connection with what lies on the other side of the wall.
