Somehow I have always found Streetart in perfect coexistence with alternative culture. And while I crave to hunt for more creative landscapes everywhere I travel, landing up in Little Five Points, in the east side of Atalanta, Georgia, USA was a ‘this is it’ moment for me and my travel photo diary…
Walking amid a rebellious crowd mixed with the curious one, the walls were far from simple and clean. They were loud and colorful, and shouted out a way of life, which is far beyond most of us. As unique as it may seem, the street at Little Five Points is a paradise for boho shoppers, buskers, artists and a real melting pot of sub cultures, in the Southern United States. Also housing some of the most popular pubs and lounges in the area, not to miss are the one of the kinds shops for all things vintage, dream catchers, semi precious / healing stones, along with some intriguing voodoo like interiors. If not a stop, I can assure the street is worthy of a drive through to get a peek into this alternative world of art and belief – where most are out there to ‘create their own meaning’.
And as my camera went ‘click’ with every step I took ahead, the post takes you on a virtual walk through of this offbeat neighborhood, ‘a misfit like fit’, in a so called sophisticated world, making it uniquely ‘Little Five Points’…
Wonderful captures of the amazing art pieces! Good job… 🙂
Thanks! Do you like visiting such places as well?
haven’t been so lucky as yet, but have seen such places in pictures..would definitely love to visit them 🙂
Trust me, you will be mesmerized! They are pretty good places. Very different from what we see daily.
Amazing talent–it’s a shame we can’t create “art spaces” for these talented artists to decorate instead. (Although a lot of the time, their art probably increases the value of the areas its found!)
Amazing. I love street art! What great examples.
