Reed and Richmond in the Mission

When local TV anchorman and legend Dennis Richmond retired two years ago, an artist at 24th and Osage set up a shrine outside his window. He has since added Lou Reed. I felt lucky to catch him at work on his next canvas today while walking by.
(Be sure to "embiggen" the photos by double clicking on them. I'm really amazed by the details in the artist's apartment, including the Bud sign and portrait of the woman behind him.)

hope one day the fellow doesn't fall out of his window as he follows the light!

was wondering if that photo of the woman could serve as your sepia saturday photo??

mouse - Well, he must go out the window to place the portraits.

I bet there is a good story about the woman behind him.
