Miami

Wynwood, Miami (4/13/2013)

Since she knows me so well my girlfriend took me to Wynwood, Miami this past weekend so I could gape at the GULLY graffiti they got in the area.

And I must admit the art scene in Wynwood is dope.

Every 2nd Saturday they got like 50 food trucks parked in a field to serve the hundreds of people who come in droves to bask in all things art related. Vendors sell random stuff across the street from the food trucks. The walking strip is full of art exhibits with work by artists of many different styles. And while you walk to each exhibit you can’t help but be enamored by the street art all around you.

The artistry found around almost every corner, on every wall, makes the label of vandalism seem unfair as it is clear that it breathes life into the area. And adds appeal to the actual exhibits.

That’s enough writing about it…enjoy scrolling:

I took way more pictures and I know how much you guys love scrolling so I’ll be uploading the rest of my Wynwood, Miami pictures on http://www.TheDailySteez.com later on tonight or tomorrow if I get to procrastinating (which I have a black belt in).

FIU: An Artistic Campus

Every time I visit my girlfriend at FIU she always tells me to pay attention to all the art that is scattered around it’s campus. Needless to say I never really paid attention. Until my last visit.

There’s sculptural art everywhere! And the exhibits they had at the museum (FREE ADMISSION) were very interesting.

Below are some pictures of what I ran into on one walk from the dorm to the museum. Enjoy!

And now some pictures of the museum and it’s exhibits. There’s some MLK. Some Obama. Some random stuff hanging from the ceiling. Even palm trees.

Enjoy some more scrolling.

I probably take too many pictures.

First Post

Hello! My name is Daniel Steez and this is my first post on this personal blog. I run some other blogs like The Daily Steez where I try to chronicle my brand’s activities. And Gully Music which I use as a medium to let people know what new music I’m listening to and ask them what they think about it.

The direction I’m taking this blog in particular is nowhere. And everywhere.

I’ll be blogging about everything I can write about. The places I go to. The things I look at. The books I read. The things I think about. Anything. And everything.

I thought this blog was necessary because it gives me freedom to do what I like as a writer on a medium completely separated from my other blogs (although content from my other blogs will be slightly infused into this one).

This is a personal account of my life as I juggle being a student, business owner, and wannabe writer. And since I also think I’m a photographer I’m just going to jump into this with some pictures I took in Miami this past weekend. Enjoy.

This first one is of a crazy looking tree…I think anything is worth taking a picture of.

Every time I see a turtle it reminds me of Finding Nemo.
