Colorful Corner: The Austin Graffiti Wall

  Hello! After a very busy month I think things are slowing down enough that that I can start posting to the blog again.

I'm going to start with a colorful image of some graffiti. We recently got back from a trip to Texas where we spent some time in Dallas, Houston and Austin. I did some photography while there including at the iconic "Austin Graffiti Wall", which is an abandoned building site that has been converted into a public graffiti showcase. Thanks to Jim Nix for recommending we visit this site! :-) I had a lot of fun exploring all the nooks and crannies that were full of all kinds of colorful graffiti.

This particular corner caught my eye so I set up my tripod and captured this image. What I like about it is that it shows all the variety of graffiti in vivid color along with some "urban artifacts" like the picnic table and other junk.

I should be posting some more images soon so stay tuned....
