Veterans Day 2018.
I originally had totally different plans for today. Last night, I found myself alone with a rented car I already paid for & no where to go and no agenda.
This morning I woke up to an old post of the first @kobrastreetart mural I saw from 4 yrs ago & I thought - that’s it! Everywhere I travel to, I try to make it a point to snap as many shots of street art as I can. So why not do that where I live when an artist I love had been all over the city this year? So I found a map of all his murals (and a couple others). I weaved my way through BK, LES and Midtown. Parking my car in front of fire hydrants with the hazards on so I could hop out of my uninsured rental w/ the engine still running and snap a few shots of the murals. Then I would sprint back how ever many blocks praying the car was still there, unscathed. It wasn’t smart but I have to admit - it made it much more exciting! Whilst driving, I got to think and reflect about a myriad of things (which is surprising bc ... driving in NYC). The things is... I really enjoyed my own company today. I love this city. Thirdly, street art is SO IMPORTANT. It’s important to locals and to travelers. You learn so much about a place’s story. Eduardo Kobra’s body of work this year (and before) - there are no words. I’ll let the photos tell you... #ThankYou
