The next stop was The Nelson Street Gallery, a quaint Goat Farm-owned establishment that highlights street art and currently has an exhibit entitled "Savor the Flavor", which showcases over 20 years of the Flavor Savors Crew Aerosol Antics and as a special highlight of an homage to the art and life of Bernie "Oiler" Perez. I overheard Shalom speaking to the shop owner about different art, he's a lot better at that than I am, whereas I'm content to play in my own little world behind the lens, he douses himself in those around him. I admire him for that. It was so cool of the shop owner to open up the gallery for just the two of us and to become immersed in the pieces before us. What these people can do with a spray can blows my mind.
Afterwards, we walked nearby to a couple of murals, one of which was a part of the Living Walls collective back in 2010. They are absolutely beautiful. To Shalom I say, thanks for showing parts of you to me on that day. It was a great way to begin and a great way to spend my day off. I liked the reminder of enjoying simple things and that beauty is everywhere, especially in the not so obvious places.
