Recently I came across an impromptu sidewalk memorial in San Francisco's Japantown (photo above). The handmade Christian cross didn't bother me, but the tacky disorder around it certainly did. There were barcodes on the two unwrapped bouquets, a cigarette pack, and a stubbed-out cigarette. OK, maybe I'm getting fussy in my old age.
Fortunately, a disturbing image like this can be sent packing. It can even be turned into contemporary art with one-step Photoshop transformations. See below. Zhazam!
