However, it also held a treasure of amazing art. My sister and I entered the alley, with wide eyes and our cameras poised. We awakened a homeless woman sleeping there, whose mumbled “What the f*** are you doing in MY alley?” did not deter us. It was a public alley and the walls were too compelling. Also, she stuck her head b
One of the most interesting things about yesterday’s Celebration of Light was crowd watching.
