Before & After…

Bushwick Street Art_01

Many of you know, particularly if you’ve been following me on Facebook or have been reading my blogs, that one of the things I like to shoot is ‘Street Art’. It was popularized and legitimized when 5Pointz was available as a street canvas. As you probably know from my past blogs, 5Pointz has been shut down as a place to paint and the building was white-washed and will be torn down, if it hasn’t been already.

Through a good friend of mine I found Bushwick and the ‘Street Art’ that is found throughout this Brooklyn neighborhood. The image above was taken on November 24th.  We returned yesterday and I was pleasantly surprised, actually shocked, with what has happened to this canvas.

Here are two images from yesterday. Amazing is the word that comes to mind. Whoda’ thunk it?
