New Mural in SW

There’s a great new mural going up in SW. Wrapping around three sides of a small store, it’s a color riot of geometric shapes with flowers, butterflies, faces, and birds. The mural is by Eric Ricks, and is part of the MuralsDC program, sponsored by the Department of Public Works and the Commission on the Arts and Humanities.

If you go this week, you can still see it in process.  It’s at 1399 Half St. SW (that’s not the Half Street by Nats stadium, it’s a couple of blocks away on the other side of South Capitol.  Who knew there were two Half Streets in D.C.?)

I'm a D.C. native, but have only been taking photos for about five years. Even in that time, I've seen so many changes in D.C., and am increasingly interested in photographing the things in D.C. that are temporary or may be demolished, and the people who interact with the city. When I'm not out photographing, I'm a web developer.
