Signs and sights: favorites week ending 06.11.17
The pup and I went for an extra big walk that included crossing the Olympic bridge. It's a pretty long stretch and we were the only pedestrians the entire time, but tons of cars went zooming by. I really enjoyed the bridge, especially the riverbed graffiti, industrial buildings, train tracks, and this giant construction recycling center. It had misters that felt good on the hot day. I'm crazy about this sign of an electronics shop I passed.
Oh no! I like this tag, but the locals did not. Yesterday (7/18) I walked by and it had a line through it with a note: "You get no love." Graffiti wars! Happy I caught it while it was clean.
As usual, saw a bunch of art including Tucker Nichols' cool flower paintings at Charlie James. I love how thick the paint is on these. Also really enjoyed Razvan Boar: EZ VALLEY exhibition at Nicodim. The Constance Mallinson paintings at Jason Vaas are so in tuned with the FULL BLEDE Issue Two: The City. (When I took this picture I was just beginning to plan the issue.) As we were leaving we ran into Vargas who was touching up his giant mural of the Suicidal Tendencies frontman Mike Muir. He wanted his signature to be bigger—that was the touch up. Cracks me up.
And the I-can't-help-myself posing of Meaux-Meaux on one of our walks.
