Cherokee Street

Real and imagined residents of St. Louis' Little Mexico: painted residents on a painted bench with sort of Medieval style perspective, and a living father with his somewhat sullen daughter. (Well, she is almost a teen-ager. What do you want?) You can't see the detail in this version but when I zoomed in on the original I noticed that the man was wearing a University of North Carolina baseball cap and a tee shirt that says, "Your Mother Went To College." What do you make of that?

Not sure what to make of the hat/shirt combo, but I do like the effect of the girl standing next to her "big brother" in blue. :)

That's a great combination of real and painted people! Fab photo as usual.

Nice photo op! We have a lot of murals in our downtown that I keep meaning to go and create some images with myself.

The more I stare at this one the more it amazes me. The men are all similar, including the real one. The girl stands out. It's a great shot.
