I've noted that many of the CDP bloggers are experiencing a photo deficit. I feel their pain. I have been dumpster diving for photos for what seems like months. Today's photo is from last fall's Art Walk. This morning while doing a little "office cleaning ", I found the business card of this artist so I can finally share this photo. During Art Walk, artists were housed in various businesses, lofts and many on the streets of downtown Birmingham. Faith Skates, skateboard store was the perfect spot for Joseph Longoria's vibrant muscian portraits. They have so much movement and energy they seem to jump right off the canvas. I loved his Elvis against the backdrop of all the funky skateboards! As a side note, I had never been in a skateboard store in my life. I guess the kids have to buy them somewhere, but I never gave it much thought! The brick walls were lined with all these colorful boards and there were shoes and wheels, and I guess everything you need in order to go out there and try and break your neck!
The Tune du Jour is "Don't Be Cruel" by Elvis of course!
