Reader Angela sent us this photo of a spray-painted bale of hay. “There’s a farm on the drive to my parents’ houses that decorates a hay bale depending on the holiday,” she wrote. “This is the first time I’ve liked one enough to take a photograph.”
Ever since The Frisky launched in 2008, we’ve been collecting “Love Vandals,” photos of charming if illegal graffiti. Well, Philadelphia stole our idea! Not really, but the Mural Arts Program did get artist Stephen Powers and a team of 40 painters to cover parts of the city with love letters over the summer. The clever murals tell different love stories, and if you’re visiting Philly, you can see them out from a window on the Market-Frankford train, like we recently did.

Reader Lisa took this photo on a trip to Thailand:
“It was my first day in Bangkok, and I was riding a boat down the city’s major river, thinking about the strange new world I was in and how tired I was and about. Being from Canada where we are so anal about keeping our lakes and river pristine, I was shocked by the pollution and the poverty that surrounded me. About halfway through my river cruise, I looked up and saw the words ‘I love you’ spray painted on a wall, and 1500 pictures later, this is still my favorite from this adventure!”
Reader Karinne sent us this photo of what looks like a couple at a high school dance. The reason we think they’re in their teens is because the girls date is clearly looking down her dress.
