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.
Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
