Road to Nirvana

The streets around Moscone Convention Center are fairly bleak as the facility itself is largely underground and the rooflines are low and corporate. The public art is passable but sticks out like colorful, sore thumbs. So when i looked up at the crosswalk to see this Buddhist monk casting an eye into the oncoming traffic, perhaps hoping to hail a cab, for one brief moment i was arrested by this sublime and telling scene. Sometimes a city street can read like a koan.
