Your curb-sitting kid is a winner. Fine street shot.

I like this 'minimal' looking composition too...the silhouette really pops the color grafitti, or vice versa...do you know which 'cuevas' the writing refers too?...just curious...

The only problem I have with this image is the title. We (speakers of UK English) spell the word describing the edge of the pavement (sidewalk) "kerb". "Curb" means "restrict". So each time I've visited the site for the last few days, I've thought "Yes! Everybody there must stand!".

Nice shot, though.

Oh, dear! How much better the world would be if everyone learned to speak God's Own American language!  Wink

I've always enjoyed the implied ambiguity* in signs I've seen in some American cities that say: "Curb your dog!"

(* For clarification on the meaning(s) of "ambiguity" see other threads on this Forum.)

Nice photo, Michael, even if Jeremy is somewhat kerbing his enthusiasm for it.   Huh
