The graffiti, like the people of California, have different colors, styles, and sizes. Everybody has their own quirky culture, personality, and talent. California, in this photo's angled perspective, is like a wall of endless opportunity for everyone to standout. Throughout history, people have come to California in search of this dream (sueño) of opportunities. Like the graffiti wall, California is not the work of a few individuals, but a collective effort of many people. As a result, this photograph represents California as the colorful sum of all people wihtihn it and the dreams they wish to achieve. Without the creativity and the diversity of the people, California would be as full as a plain concrete wall.
