Today yielded yet another interesting experience from the downtown scene. This is Week #3 for this type of a start-of-the-week entry; first it was the candy bar (which is still on the ledge!), then it was a pretty sneaky (read: clever) marketing tactic… if I’m not careful, this blog might start to organically adopt some sort of “Metro Monday” theme…
But alas, things are what they are; and it’s my ‘job’ to simply acknowledge them, and delight in them. So that’s what I did, and that’s what I’ll now share with you. 🙂
Today I took a little stretch break over the lunch hour. I felt like I needed some fresh air and fresh scenery, so I started moving a few blocks in the opposite direction that I normally head; and as I walked through a corridor of a building, I saw this:
This scene was a larger-than-life-size mural. Because the corridor I was standing in was only five or six feet wide, I literally couldn’t back up far enough to photograph the entire mural, much less capture the perspective of the hallway that it was in to better convey the mural’s true size. So, please imagine that this mural is easily eight feet high, and twelve feet long – in other words, it’s massive.
I adore black-and-white photography, and I also adore the early 1900s; so when I saw this ‘ordinary’ office building wall covered with this amazing mural, I literally stopped mid-stride, stood still in the middle of the corridor, and gazed at the picture. Just stared. I was completely immersed. It was wonderful.
