Walking Around

IMG_0953

One of the things I like about my new apartment is the neighborhood, which is rich with architectural detail.  I’ve spent a lot of time walking around noticing.  This lion is on my regular route, and I love the saturation of color.  There’s a paired lion on the other side of the stoop, but this one is the exception: there is something to the curves of his nose and lips, the tendrils and etchings, and to the deep, expressive carve of eye.

p.s.  The rich coloration makes me think of this painting by Mark Rothko.
