A shrine, of sorts

It was just an alley, after all. There wasn’t any real reason for it to feel different from any other alley I’ve ever walked down. But the progression of art and the rhythmic fences marking property boundaries gave it a bit of a formal feel. And the longer I stayed there, the more it began to feel special, like Important Things had just happened, and would happen again.

Or maybe paint fumes were getting to me…

    Well the area has made the creative juices flow to our delight.


    • Glad I could help!

      My friend Adolfo told me about this place, and he heard about it from his brother-in-law. Adolfo often serves as my location scout (in fact he’s on a trip this weekend, and I expect to be hearing from him.) Anyway, apparently graffiti is encouraged at this location, I imagine it gets a LOT of creative juice flowing. I’ll be back in Dallas in early June, and hope to be able to check it out again – mostly to see if those giant shoes are still there, but also to see how much the paintings have changed.
