With love from the NOPAlands: Mural in progress.

in progress
Could not resist having the Frenchie pose for a photo in front of the colorful (already!) mural on Fell & Scott street. I first learned about it via Pagelands finest, the calitexican - then I read all the details here: Mural in progress via BikeNOPA
This made me smile. I'm not sure I would have paid much attention to what was there before, as that area, personally, is highly stressful. I'm pretty slow as is, so there are a myriad of cyclists passing me very fast when I ride past this corner, and the traffic I just keep a very close eye to. It is a plate full of chaotic stress and it is nice to see the progress of a happy mural *ponytail* included.
♥I liked that the most.

    Hot brewed or cold, two rickshaws make an entire coffee bar. 3 guys had the idea, made it work.
