Georgetown

I've been wanting to go to Georgetown for a photoshoot for quite a while. They seem to be tearing buildings down over there every day. I finally went last Thursday for a few hours before my afternoon flight to Vegas. There was some interesting architecture, lots of brick buildings (my fav), graffiti, stickers, junk yard, antique shops, bakeries, and some bars and restaurants I'd like to check out some time.

I'm really glad I went when I did, but wish I had gone sooner. One of the most colorfully graffitied buildings was being torn down that day in a matter of hours. We were probably the last people to photograph it. Both the front and back of the building were covered in graffiti art. It's sad to think it's all gone now. There's really not much graffiti left in Georgetown now and I'm sure there were a lot more that has been torn down.

I'm not sure what they are planning to do with the space where these great buildings were, but they will be missed. More photos can be found in my Georgetown Photostroll set on Flickr.
