This particular shot took several attempts/trips. Under a bridge on the highway home, (the missus driving). I’d shoot several of the works above in “machine gun” fashion. No way to stop or slow down. Check and work on the best shots later at home and a little “lab” work. I’d actually caught only a breeze of this spectacular work on a previous trip. This one is not perfect but worth it.
I finally identified the artist: Duek Gonzalez. Seems he’s only 24. Some may recall another work of his on a house nearby: portraits, a rabbit, and a young woman with snakes. Looks like he’d done a lot of work in Mexico city. I’ll try to do a “Duek safari” some day. He is a very talented young man.
