Work in Progress

Here in University Heights, at the corner of Cleveland and Meade Avenues, is American Market. Next month, the Wilcox family celebrates 10 years living in the neighborhood, and the one-stop shop has been a fixture for even longer. Today, the first inklings of new art appeared on side of the building. Damn, wish I had seen the work in progress.

As I shared 16 days ago, beloved neighborhood old-time feline Fess vanished sometime overnight August 1-2. Last week, as his owner and I discussed the disappearance, Mr. Parker asked if I knew that he is an airbrush artist. I did not. He explained that he would soon paint a mural on the side of the convenience store, starting with a sketch.

I shot the Featured Image at 6:32 p.m. PDT, using Leica Q. I let Adobe Photoshop Lightroom auto-correct, which mainly changed exposure and whites, before exporting from DNG to JPEG. Vitals, aperture manually set: f/4, ISO 100, 1/160 sec, 28mm.
