Photo-finish Friday: out and about

Yet another in the inexhaustible supply of Los Angeles wall murals. This giant portrayal of members of the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra truly graces the sides of a parking structure facing northbound traffic on the 110 Freeway downtown. It recently observed its 20th anniversary, noted here in the LA Times with some history and a photo that favors the south-facing musicians better. I snapped this from the back of a bus just as the bearded violist was about to slip behind the trunk of a palm tree.

Coming up:  Robert Ryan, The Day of the Outlaw (1959)
