Little Five Points.

Today I went to hang out with a friend I met just yesterday, with her was this other dude; I must say he's really cool and nice. Anyway we picked up a few more of her friends who are also pretty tight and went down to Little Five Points near the Atlanta area. When we get there we stopped by a few shops that had an enormous amount of costumes and accessories. After that we stopped at this one guy painting with spray paint cans. There was maybe 10-15 people watching him as he sat on a blue tarp with a luggage case, a cardboard box, and a white poster. I started watching him as he started his last piece and I was FUCKING AMAZED! He created such a brilliant piece of outer space with just spray paint and 2 circular objects for a planet and maybe a moon or another distant planet. He made volcanoes or mountains so easily and they looked so realistic. He charged $20.00 per piece and I would gladly pay every penny if he was still taking orders but he ran out of paper and was forced to stop. I'm sure he makes more than enough to make a career out of it but he said that he's been doing what he does for 18 years, living as a hobo painting for people, because he enjoys it. I really wanted a painting....

The only one I saw was something like this but in my opinion looked just so much more rich and brilliant than this.
