Kick Push Kick Push… COAST

and away they rode
just rebels without a cause
with no place to go

I started to notice the existence of trends as I was taking pictures at The Denver Post’s 13th Annual Underground Music Showcase.  I’m aware they have always been there, but I never really paid much attention until I started practicing photographing people in the streets. I find myself drawn to the people who stand out, the ones who are dressed in fancy clothes, loud colors, or smart patterns. The out of the ordinary. The UMS crowd was sporting cutoff jean shorts, slippers, skinny jeans, summer dresses, and neon colored throwback 80’s sunglasses,  all trends that seem to be gaining popularity in Denver .

Maybe I didn’t notice because I’ve never been much of a fashionable guy. I gave up trying to be cool, and just went with the jeans and a t-shirt stay at home 40 year old dad look. I’m just too busy and too tired to care.  Denver in the summer becomes a much more vibrant scene as the cold weather gives way to hot summer days.  It’s nice to see something other than big puffy coats and dirty snow. Here are 10 images of people sporting stripes in similar fashion.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Masterpiece

“We seem to be made to suffer. It’s our lot in life.” -C3P0

Stencil art in the graffiti culture is particularly interesting to me. I love its ability to convey the artists message to a wide audience. The Masterpiece is in the eye of the beholder. The vibrant colors, and rebellious attitude of Street Art is my style of Masterpiece. This art form is virtually unrewarding in any monetary fashion to most of the artists, and to me is one of the most raw forms of artistic expression in contemporary society.

Money is not the sole reason for the creation of these masterpieces. I admire that. The subculture of Graffiti that is stencil art has grown in popularity over the years. The amazing capabilities of modern technology are linking the artists via social communities on the internet. These temporary works live on through images broadcast through social media sites like Flickr, Instagram, Facebook, and the blogosphere. A skillfully created stencil is always going to catch my eye. Although the practice is considered illegal, I believe these masterpieces have a place in the urban landscape.
