This was just one of many "features" in a vacant lot in a blighted neighborhood in Philadelphia. Dennis, the man who single-handedly had taken charge of decorating the street (murals honoring a murdered friend, holiday theme painting of hydrants, abandoned doorways, alleys, etc) gave us a quick tour of his "work."

The photo was taken in March of 2012.

The city just hasn't got around to it yet, but Jack is probably right. This guy is very creative!

What a special man to go around and try to bring beauty to the city. And what a wonderful artist he is. Love the way that he set this up, cute and adorable along with the God Bless sigh. You did a fabulous job of bringing his work to light with this beautiful picture Michelle. Bless both of you my friend.
