Sunday Afternoon


A quick sketch while sitting on the steps of a store entrance portal as it is closed on Sundays. Cars parked in front of me, coming and going leaving just enough time in between to glance the information across the street and jot it down in my sketchbook.

  13. Those look like the old-fashioned transformers on the electric poles, the kind that used to blow out during times of heavy use – a picture of a street frozen in time except that it looks like TV cable strung along the poles below the transformers – a nod to modern times.
