Sometimes you stumble on places that are a mother lode of wonderful images waiting to happen. Certainly if you are in the Grand Canyon, it is not a surprise. Recently we had dinner on a hidden street in New York, Freemans Alley. We discovered an art bonanza. There was even a small Shepard Fairey. Drinks, dinner, art and Andre the Giant. What could be better?
