Life is amazing; we open one door and an entirely new world stands before us. While I was in London a couple of weeks ago, I picked up a travel magazine to London, TIME OUT, which had an article about DAVID SHILLINGLAW. I was curious and went with my friend Luis to Brick Lane to see the Street Art, in particular Shillinglaw’s new piece of Bacon Street. I shot over 100 photographs from this visit. Yesterday, I wrote a Valentine’s Day article and used some of Shillinglaw’s images to highlight my HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY celebration on my blog. Yesterday, I went to a meeting of our city’s Arts Council where I talked about having a Shillinglaw wall in our community. I emailed the London artist who responded that he would like to come to visit the western regions of the United States and to paint a very large wall on my two-floor office building. For me, these fun events are the result of opening doors and having a walk through. Antiseptic travel are unfortunate; get out in the city–read TIME OUT MAGAZINE where many layers of London life are explored. Seeing the great sights is wonderful and necessary, but isn’t there time in your travel plans to dig a bit deeper. Walk through a few “different” doors; you will be rewarded for your curiosity. This is a great example.
