Life Thru the Lens 29/52... And, Life Gets a Little Crazy

The Good...

All of the sudden we have been super busy at our house. There are finalizations to be made on a forever home being built. Dinners, and long over due heart connections with old friends. College paperwork for Blue Eyes to be filled out. Scheduling of a senior year for Dreamer.

Whooh, we went from a summer slumber to living life at warp speed.

The Random...

I have been so terribly busy that I have not been able to stop by your blog neighborhoods for a visit. One of the things I look forward to each Sunday is sitting down with a nice cuppa something and visiting all the many worlds you live in. I promise I'll be by this week to catch up and to see your Life Thru the Lens.

I had a photo featured over at Albom Adventures.  Rhonda is writing a series of blogs on Street Art Around the World. It is a really fun interesting series, so be sure to hop on over and see this weeks entries from Canada and America.

Life Thur the Lens 27/52... Happy 4th of July, and a Little Art Randomness

Today it is the 4th of July; happy Independence Day to my American friends. 

The Fun...

I have already mentioned Art Alley before, but I thought I would leave these current additions with you. The alley is fluid and changes with each new vibe (or cultural event) happening at the time.

The Good....

My favorite piece of art is now painted over in the alley, but that is okay because I found this piece of inspiration.

The Random...

Art Alley, Rapid City, S.D.   "RESPECT"

The city talked about shutting the alley down to artists. I am thrilled to say that the art community fought back and came to a compromise with a permit system. Not everyone follows it, I think there is always a bit of rebellion deeply embedded in artists, but for the most part it is a great success.

There are a few buildings who have chosen not to be a part of Art Alley, which I think is futile. I say embrace the creative side of life... or like an artist painted, "We are not painting, we are perfecting." Embrace the perfection.

Tips for visiting Art Alley...

~You can find it in the ally between 6th and 7th street.

~Parking is metered downtown Rapid City, so bring quarters.

~Be sure to walk around the city center after you visit Art Alley, it is bustling with historical architecture and kitschy stores. 

~If you are in the mood for a treat stop by Main Street Square for a yummy coffee, or a smoothie at Alternative Fuel Coffee House. But, if you are looking for something a little more delectable you cannot go wrong at the Silver Lining Creamery, our favorite ice cream shop in town. 

WHAT ART IS INSPIRING YOU LATELY??
