Default Odd, in context

I was a few miles east of Zolfo Springs, Florida (which is to say, no where), and I saw this Mexican gang tag on an old concrete structure in a citrus grove. We're used to the idea of gang graffiti in big cities, but it is odd to see it in a remote location like this.

I guess it's motorcycles that make this possible.

Cute shot.

Best regards,

Doug

Bob,

What's so interesting is the pride they take in the execution of the work. It's not just arrive and splash on paint and scarper!
