Week 24 #5.

The rent is too high

for dishy vintage stores now.

Will the mural stay?

(I often feel weird about photographing street art and other artwork. If I take a straightforward shot, I worry that I’m merely copying another artist’s work, but if I try to add too much “me” to the photo, the resulting shot usually ends up feeling contrived. Despite my continued ambivalence, I’ve been making the effort to take a lot more of these shots in the past year, simply because of the fleeting nature of the artwork. And hey, maybe if I do it often enough, I’ll start to figure out what works for me.)
