Deep Ellum.

This Easter weekend Dallas, Texas, had its annual Deep Ellum Arts Festival.  Deep Ellum is an historic neighborhood just north of downtown.  At one time, Deep Ellum was home to a mostly African-American population, but over the years, the demographics have become more diverse.  Nowdays, Deep Ellum is known mostly for live music and arts.  The annual Deep Ellum Arts Festival is a street scene covering several blocks along Elm Street.  You will see the usual array of live bands, art booths, fast foods and plenty of beer.  I spent some time this evening walking the length of the festival, and photographing whomever looked interesting.  I did not get any names or stories but, as always in these festivals, sights and sounds count more than stories.




Please let us know what you think about what we see.
