This installation of my "Street Art" series is a day late for the CPD Theme Day, but this blog is not a CPD blog so I reckon no harm, no foul, eh?
I did enjoy seeing the many graffitti photos from all over the world yesterday. It was also interesting to read some of the commentary about whether these "works" should be considered art or vandalism.
In the case of these Colorado Springs selections, the "artists" installed their works on a previously abandoned warehouse that has been incorporated into what Colorado Springs has now dubbed "The Depot Art District" that lies on a small parcel between a concrete arroyo (aqueduct) that parallels the Interstate freeway and the railroad tracks. Directly across the railroad tracks is the 19th century Train Station aka "Depot," which is now a well-loved restaurant and shops (of course!).
The photo I use in this blog's header was also taken in this district, in fact as I recall I was standing in the same spot. I just turned to the right to take this picture of the Depot.
Well, sorry for the (up til now) uncharacteristic verbosity. I got started and couldn't stop.
Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
