Oh, shiny!, I gasped in silent admiration as I noticed the guilding** on the Arch.
I had not intended to blog about the Arch. Coyote , Robin and this blog are covering that event.
But, then I came around to the other side, and caught the eye of one of the artists - he leaned over and viewed me through an opening below the green mesh.
As he stared and took a puff of his fag, I smiled and motioned, Can I take your picture?
He motioned back, Yes.
I wanted to gesticulate, Can I please come up and get a closer look at the beautiful work that you are doing? But, instead, I yelled, Beautiful!
One last smile was exchanged, my camera clicked and captured a moment, and off I went towards home where Chinese greens and pork dumplings with a special dipping sauce were being lovingly prepared for me.
