Today was officially their last day. The mural was completed a day ago with the exception of the signature. The artists returned this morning to take a few photos and to watch Kobra sign it. Somehow I was lucky enough to be asked to sneak down and be a part of the small media group that watched.
There were all sorts of very kind media people with fancy cameras, tripods, video equipment, etc. And here I was, a mom in her minivan with no press credentials and mostly shooting with an iPhone!
I asked them to climb up onto their huge orange lift. I had been envisioning a photo similar to the famous one of the construction workers sitting on a high beam in New York City.
After the boys posed for a few shots, they were on their way to the airport! I was overwhelmed with the feeling that I had just witnessed a historical event for my city.
