I like a bit of a mystery.
Captivated by the Georgian architecture in Dublin, I set out to photograph some of the doors and buildings for a later project. On this particular door, I found a note that read The OXO Boys. The OXO Boys…who are they?? I wondered. Did they like kisses more than hugs? Were they aspiring graffiti artists who didn’t believe in defacing public property, so they tagged it with paper instead? Were they clever painters, carefully hinting to the building’s owners that it needed a facelift? Or, maybe they liked to run naked through the streets of Dublin at night, advertising their exploits with sticky notes?
Well, if Google is correct, The OXO Boys are actually a folk band. I suppose that’s a far more practical explanation.
