Urban Transparency





Today, I walked along Telegraph Avenue in pursuit of urban art observing traces of Berkeley's abandoned artistic legacy. Cal students practiced dance routines on Sproul Plaza, for a crowd near Zellerbach Hall. A faceless manikin in a store window looked out on a dead city wondering, "where have the independent book stores,craft artisans, street musicians, artists and sundry intellectuals gone?" Across the street graffiti tagged as blue as the sky, sprawled across an abandoned storefront.

You're presenting a wonderful aesthetic of images and ideas here. I like it.

Thanks for visiting my site - and I've added link back to here, because this is a place I'd like to keep track of.

Kind regards,
Indie
