Starting up soon

I've wandered the streets of El Paso, Texas for well more than two decades. When my office moved to the Wells Fargo building on Kansas Street in December, 2005, I realized it was an excellent chance to take advantage of photographing the streets of the city.

One of the most interesting things about our downtown is the signage. Much of what you'll see is the disappearing art form of painted lettering and representations of everything from food to hairstyles.

Religious bookstores, cheap housewares and electronics, sunglasses and bootleg T-shirts. It's all in downtown El Chuco. And I love it all.

I'll start posting pix soon. Thanks for dropping by!
