You can spot graffiti all around Portland, from the scribbled tags of young "vandals" on trash cans and street signs to the colorful and artistic postcard created by professionals that adorns the wall of Asylum.

But one of the most unexpected places to see fat, spray-painted letters and larger-than-life imagery is the dedicated graffiti wall on the East End. The wall is positioned near the junction between Eastern Prom Trail and Back Cove Trail and provides plenty to look at for people walking or running along the paved pathway.

On one side there is water, boat docks and the B&M plant. On the other is this:

The images are also a big contrast to the Portland Water District East End Wastewater Treatment Facility that looms behind the wall.

When the sun comes out again, take a walk that way and you'll find some pretty different views of the city. Some are all about nature. Others are anything but nature - but they're well worth checking out.
