(never) give up

This is a detail of a graffiti in Taipei. The whole wall reads:"永不放棄", which means:"Never give up". The last character alone, which is written in white in this pic, means:"Give up".

I decided to cut the rest of the wall for two reasons:

a) Taking a picture of the whole thing would have taken me quite a lot of time and stitching, and the background behind the wall was a shopping mall that I gladly avoided to include in the frame.

b) For Chinese speakers, all those images of raised fists create a strong contrast to the word 棄.

Minor processing involved, I just added a bit of contrast and made sure the lines would look straight.
