look up.

you go girl!
some of my favorite local building's aesthetic upgrades. i like to pretend it's talking directly to me... sometimes it is.

i look up a lot walking around this city. i don't care if people think i'm a tourist because i'm so in awe of all the beautiful things going on. i'd rather people think i'm just visiting when they see me smiling noticing fun graffiti, a cool building's architectural details or how cool it looks when rust runs down concrete, than to walk around looking straight ahead missing everything like everyone else i see. i'm never in that big of a hurry to get my sandwich, bike tube, sewing needles. i like participating in my surroundings, when other people leave their traces around i like taking note. isn't our entire world at this point just a series of interactions? interactions with each other, with the environment, with materials. we are living in a world of results, but none of them are end results. isn't that cool to think about?

  1. That is totally cool to think about. Where I work the stairs open all the way to the 5th floor where there is a huge sky light and I think 90% of the people who work there don't even know it is there. Cool graffiti.
