Today I took a spin over to The Silos. The building has been re-purposed and is now shaping up to be one of the best art spaces in the U.S.A. for visual artists and photographers. It is only going to grow and get better over time. Here are a few murals and photos from the area.

Today was a great day to get out and shoot some photography and see the beautiful murals around Houston. We have so many great artists and art pieces in our city that you could photograph for days and not get them all. Here is a small sample. Check them out!

The Grotto is an art piece and sculpture integrated into the walkway along the San Antonio river. I took these photos a few weeks ago.

I stumbled across some of these photos while researching Photoshop. I can not say I created them, but I can say, I am passing them along because they are pretty cool. I hope you enjoy them. There is nothing like IMAGINATION.

I was cruising down San Pedro Avenue in San Antonio,Texas, when I happened upon these cool wall murals. The people who painted these are not gangsters, or taggers, they are artists.

Well, I haven’t touched on the topic of art in a while.┬áToday, I stumbled across two really cool artistic guitars.

A Fender Strat that is hand-carved, and right below it, a Gibson Les Paul that looks to be tiled with some mother of pearl and abalone.

What a way to look great while jamming.

Life Is Like Chess

We all make our move

Sometimes we jump, or get jumped

We go all over

Chasing and running for dreams

The royalty always wins
