Soon to Be Dallas's Most Photographed Man

Slowly but surely Flickr fills up with images of the Traveling Man who strides through Deep Ellum. Here, for now, are two of our current favorites; after the jump, a rare nighttime shot of his seated counterpart. Co-creator Brandon Oldenburg told our Patrick Michels not long ago he hopes the sculptures, commissioned by Dallas Area Rapid Transit to beautify the Green Line stops in Deep Ellum, become as photographed as the Crown Fountain in Chicago. It's a start.
