One of the things I like about living in a more urban area again is the amount of visual stimulation you get just from taking a stroll through the neighborhood. I'm fortunate to live somewhere with a high concentration of artistic people. I especially enjoy walking through the alleys that dot the neighborhood, particularly in Venice. Not only do people leave out interesting trash, but you tend to come across strange garage doors, entryways, graffiti art, etc. Here are a few iphone shots from today.
