The talent that the street artists bring to the annual I Maddonari festival always amazes me. From seemingly nowhere a stunning image comes to life.
And for a little while the pavement is graced with vibrant beauty that will quickly vanish, as if it was never there.

Destitute pea pickers in California. Mother of seven children. Age thirty-two. Nipomo, California (LOC), originally uploaded by The Library of Congress.
California is revisiting its not too distant history. The future of the State isn't bright and rosy, in fact, it's downright gloomy.
This can't all be blamed on the recent economic downturn. We've been heading in this direction for ages, and the downturn just brought existing problems to the forefront.
Don't expect any of this to resolve itself anytime soon. We don't have the leadership, nor resolve to get ourselves out of this mess.
It will probably take hitting rock bottom before we begin to put aside our selfish and childish ways and do what needs to be done.

We've had decades of the same. An inept government and voters who vote for everything under the sun. There's just NO money to pay for this.
Budget cuts, special elections, tax increases..... and more cuts, and more taxes, and more and more and more.... You get the idea. Nothing seems to work...
Hmmmmm.... Seems to me like California is headed for another first... Bankruptcy (no State's done that yet) - truth be told, we've been bankrupt for years. We just borrow and tax, pretending this is the solution to the mess and the road to prosperity.
Not this time (I hope). Who is the State going to tax? The growing number of unemployed? And borrow more? We've already got the lowest credit rating in the Nation, not to mention that just makes the problem worse.
Bailout? Heaven forbid! Why should the rest of the Nation pay for California's stupidity? They shouldn't!
California - time to take that first step and admit you have a problem and make the tough decisions that need to be made.
You've already thrown away the future for an entire generation, and in my book that's criminal.
Take heed America. Utopia ain't all it's cut out t be!

When possible I try to combine a couple of elements in a photograph to tell a bit of a story, and get away from having a static image.
All simply done by changing my point of view to add something to the foreground to contrast with the background.
