North Park Photo Journal
During our visit, North Park's art community was much more apparent to me than anything else. Ton's of beautiful graffiti decorated otherwise boring alleys, back doors, and even front doors. This was actually the opposite from our Horton Plaza visit. North Park's signage and modes of communication are much more subdued and almost part of the neighborhoods character, while the signage at Horton Plaza was blatantly tacked on. Neither is better or worse, because each serves it's purpose in it's given context. These two places merely communicate a message through a different medium.
