Tag A lot Thursday

There is an awesome art gallery/shop in Houston, right off of Shepherd and Washington, Alva Graphics, that has the most fabulous street art graffiti walls.  It is near my work and we pass it everyday, Monday through Friday.  Well the other day I decided it was high time to go snap some pics of the graffiti art before it gets covered up again with a new set.

That is kinda what they do, I think.  I have seen the outside store walls designed three or four different ways over the last year or so.  And the current art is fabulous and I couldn't let it get away.  I heart graffiti art so so much...not gang tagging, but actual street art, like you are about to see. 

Apperantly, the owners of the fine art collection store had a graffiti show and demo and people came out and watched the art go!  Wish I would have known. 

Here are my favorite captures.

I am also so excited about this location because I have a photo shoot lined up with a fabulous mommy and daughter duo, whose style will only add to the funkiness and uniqueness that this kind of color and texture and art bring!!!!  So I say BRING IT ON!!!!

OH!  And I also have to say the So You Think You Can Dance (aka SYTYCD) episode last night...07.20.11...was my favorite all time episode EVER!!!!  Ever.  And this is like Season EIGHT...and I have been watching since the be.gin.ning!!!!  It was magical, mind blowing, breath taking and I refuse to erase it from my DVR because I will be watching and re-watching it over and over again.  Simply marvelous. 

If you have never tuned in....I highly suggest you do.  And if you have for some reason tuned out...I highly suggest you tune back in.  Stat. 


Off to see the Greatest Show on Earth tonight!!!  To say me and the girl are excited would be an understatement.
