If you ask anyone in Pensacola, they would all agree The Graffiti Bridge is an ever-changing work of art. But if you take a closer look, each tag, each panel, has its own multiple interpretations.
I discovered this firsthand from a picture I took of the bridge last month. The picture I saw was a “Green Alien” head. You know the one I’m talking about. Big head, huge eyes. Pretty much the stereotypical “real” aliens depicted by Hollywood. Sometimes green, sometimes gray, some tall and spindly, some short and better proportioned.
I have to admit, I’ve always had an affinity for aliens. Just the idea that perhaps we are not alone in the universe; that there is intelligent life on other worlds, has been a lifelong fascination of mine.
So when I saw that tag on the bridge, I had to capture it. But this is what I found really interesting. After I posted the picture on Facebook, the comments left were completely different. Some saw the alien head, some saw “I love Ana,” while others saw “Roll Tide.” It was really interesting. All these messages were there in the same tag, but until I read the comments, they just didn’t register.
Then I started looking at other pictures posted on the page, and I discovered the same phenomenon. Nearly every picture of the bridge has different people commenting on different aspects of the same piece of art.
