The here and now... and what and why

Complacency is a trap. At least that’s what I was thinking when I up and left the comfort of a Yankee prep school gig, where I taught music, amongst other things, for 28 years. There was also that life long career as a composer, musician and artist.

First, it was a year in St. Thomas, USVI, working as a reporter and shooting photography and then, a year in San Agustin Etla, Oaxaca, Mexico.
Time passed.
More time passed and a year back in the Athens of America followed by a hasty return to Oaxaca where it is all happening.
A couple of years in San Sebastian Etla and now, just down the road in San Pablo Etla. Life is good.

You can find my music on Jango (World & latin - Worldbeat) and at iTunes and most online stores.

Street Art cont.... part 88

It really is wild.  Street art appears and disappears like that.  I am always watching the walls, especially when I am someplace new.  I make mental notes and then, when given the chance, I hoof it back to see if it/they is still there.  Sometimes I will shoot from a moving car, if I am not driving or just pull over and get the shot before it disappears.... and they all disappear eventually.  OMG!  This is nice!
These are pretty remarkable and are on Crespo just before the stairs going up to the Guelaguetza Auditorio.
Love the detail work.
 The bougainvillea fits right in, in terms of color.
I am sure some of it is stencil work, but I have shots coming up of people doing it all freehand.
What an amazing art scene here.  I still maintain that this place is unique in the quantity and quality of the graffiti artists here.
Tag wisely, mis amig@s.
