Walker's Point has more than its share of street art, including a very large mural on the side of a building just off the north-south freeway. Here is a small piece of that mural.
In contrast, here is a portion of a small mural featuring stylized fish.
What caught my eye was not so much the fish as the written comment, which was added at a later date. Note the spelling.
Speaking of verbiage, here is part of other public "art" located under a major freeway that features an Eric Clapton lyric.
In this case I wanted to emphasize the general scene, including the underside of the underpass.
Then there was this dramatic jalapeño pepper painted on the side of, yes, a Mexican restaurant, of which there are many in Walker's Point.
There was also graffiti, of course. I actually liked the following abstract that I converted to a black and white.
Speaking of black and white, here are some other shots that I thought worked better as monochromatic.
For whatever reason, I liked the following very simple shot of a very white, very plain doorway and surround.
To get this image, I had to fool my camera's light meter by overexposing the shot to keep the walls a bright white.
I also played around a bit with shallow depth of field, in a couple of cases focusing on chain link fences and letting the backgrounds go out of focus. In some sense my intended objects were in the background--the distant building in one case and the chicken "artwork" in the other.
Once the weather warms up again, I think I will find myself returning to the Walker's Point neighborhood.
