SOWA Shoot

I hear about SOWA, the Boston neighborhood South Of WAshington St. quite a lot. (“SOWA” – get it?) I stopped by a few weeks ago to stroll around and make a few images. It was a bit cold and dreary. They are known for a big open market in the warmer weather. I plan to return. In the meantime, here are a few images.

    We have a creative and still rather dilapidated area of Columbus called Franklinton. They have artist lofts and some rather worn out buildings. My brother, Randy, had considered coming “back” to Columbus. Chris, from his college days at OSU and working in a rough neighborhood on his art, he had chosen to move up to Cleveland, where life was being lifted in the Arts area, about 15 years ago. His three level suburbs location is so much *”safer” from robberies and vandalism. I think when he had his quadruple bypass surgery, he realized he had made the best choice. I miss his being close since we hung out like each other’s wing man on club nights and outings. . .
    Your post made me think this area has potential!

      So many areas that were “let go” twenty years ago in Boston are now hot spots. Cleveland to Columbus is not too too far but I’m sure being closer to your wingman would be great. Cheers

        Yes, we both love the same music styles and used to help each other out so much more. I stayed at his “house” and gallery over Easter so we visited other brother and of course, Mom but went out both nights. 🙂

    Oops! Your photos were colorful and I especially liked the criss cross look to the wire gate on one building and the pediments designs over windows in the long building. Those black with white swirls stones above window set are pretty!

      Thank you, Sarah. They have some weekend events and a first Friday event. It’s a mix of indoor and outdoor activities. I hope to get in a couple of times. Cheers
