"Wren"

Late night clarification: This is a guy and he's smiling because he was just given a half dozen cigarettes.

She looks unusually happy. Maybe she just made some money.

Maybe some charming guy just took her picture.

Petrea said...

Yup. You've been chatting with her. She likes you. She's pleased you asked to take her photo.

Where was Stimpy?

Cafe Pasadena said...

Yep, it's hard 4 women 2 resist a charming guy with money.

This dog had better find a way to make a little dough. The only thing I've been catching are cats!

I think he's smiling cause his cake was left out in the rain...
and thanks for the clarification that this was a man!

altadenahiker said...

Uh-oh. Well then, he's a pretty man.

Yep, some free cigs. I remember how nice that was back in college. At today's prices, a great big ole smile. Nice street portrait K.

MP is still a dangerous place to be, Kevin. I know they've made attempts to clean it up but I'd be extra careful there, if I were you.

Now, to the photo. "Wren" is a really special piece. I know that he is the subject but I can't stop looking at the trees behind him. There's something about that shape, that arc. I am completely mesmerized by the background.

Beautiful work.

Virginia said...

I'm back. Thanks to Godinia for pointing out the obvious that I always miss. The arching trees and the statue in the very background. You don't miss a trick do you Kevin? Got a match?

Wren has a Guardian Angel looking out for him. You can see the angel in the distance past the trees.
