Pavement Art (or, how a sidewalk made a great portrait)

Bust of a man etched randomly in the sidewalk

I stand in awe of the world sometimes. Here’s a crack in a granite sidewalk with the remnants of a metal signpost and various sized stones stuck into the dirt and it is creating, at least for me, an portrait of a slightly disheveled and anxious man.

Let’s just say it reminds me of a Francis Bacon painting and, well, Mr. Bacon himself.
