animal crackers in my soup

before I left nyc on monday last, I had the good fortune to go on a photo safari with fellow shutterbug and blogging bud julian. we were on the hunt for street art and in a relatively short time we encountered quite a bit of stimulating and thought provoking stuff. of course, it does helps when one is on a wander to be with someone who has already scouted out the terrain. the photo above is a detail from an amazing (and most curious) mural which honors the zapatista revolution in chiapas.

for a virtual tour of what we captured, check out this slide show. with the exception of the first couple snaps, all the photos were taken in harlem.

Now that to me seems like it is a happy wall! Where are you storing all your files? You must have kazillions of photos!
