Street art enriches the fabric of our cities. Philadelphia calls home to quite a lot of street art and some great instagrammers capturing this art. Conrad Benner is one of them. We've featured his thoughts on the blog before. He's not just been capturing art around the city, he's been changing the city itself. Conrad's advocacy around #SEPTA247 helped push the agency to offer 24 subway trials and later full expansion of service on weekends

He's been gracious enough to host some of my photography on his site as well. Check out some of the graffiti I snapped on a recent trip to Tel Aviv, posted to his blog today.

If you don't already, be sure to follow Conrad on Instagram: @streetsdept
