Next...you could do Mother Theresa on a sesame seed bun...
Frank L Croston.: Now you are not taking it seriously,Ray, anyway,those seeds stick in your teeth.
You captured this beautifully, Frank! I'd really love to know who does these realistic poster like graffiti thingies out on the Rez... OH!!! We should have asked the bro's! Yá'át'ééh!
Frank L Croston.: Ya'at'eeh', chief, thanks, it was unusual, great imagination to use it like that,we'll ask them next time...smile

Is it a poster ?? Or painting ??......theres a guy who is from england and his realistic paintings with spray paint would blow your mind.....
Frank L Croston.: If I recall it was a poster,Shane, that sounds interesting.

A wonderful juxtaposition Frank - bravo!
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Chris, it is rather odd.Though I like it, it certainly shows some left field imagination.
At first I thought you cloned this in, Frank. WOW.
Frank L Croston.: Nope, all genuine, Ginnie. Thanks.
Looking up to the heavens for help.
Frank L Croston.: Could be Bud, couldn't believe this when I saw it from the road, it's a stall selling native American jewellery, close to the little Colorado gorge.

A fascinating observation and a great photo! I assume we are in the States?
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Philine, I should have said, yes, we were on the way to view the little Colorado gorge,you can just see it behind the stall.

Was the face there or did you put it there?
Frank L Croston.: Oh ye of little faith,Richard... It was there,on the side of a Navajo jewellery stall.
What an unusual thing to come across. Good capture.
Frank L Croston.: I thought so,Mary, I was intrigued.Thanks.
Would have made a good 70s album cover Frank
Frank L Croston.: I don't remember the seventies of course, I'll have to take your word for it...Oh, I just broke the end of my nose off...Thanks, Bill.

Excellent Frank - wish it was mine!
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Mike, high praise! smile
Brilliant shot Frank........that is a great find!
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Martin, yes, I thought it was.
This has such a surreal look to it, Frank. What a strange thing to see sitting in that environment. Your capture of it is a work of art.
Frank L Croston.: It was rather odd,Beverley, thank you so much.

Is this real? or is some clever bit of editing? Looks like the door has not been used for a while.
Frank L Croston.: It's real, Alan, the door was sealed up, it was a jewellery stall,not uncommon,as you know. smile
I thought it was a magic compilation of your own, Frank!
Frank L Croston.: No, all real, Tom.

I first thought you did some photoshop shenanigans here, but so it is real. Excellent.
Frank L Croston.: I always own up to them,Louis,thank you.
I'm glad I've seen this after your replies elsewhere, what a brilliant way to brighten up a shack.
Frank L Croston.: Isn't it just, Brian, it's actually a stall selling Navajo jewellery, so Elizabeth was kept happy,while I wandered around shooting.
Love this image Mike..very creative!
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Aderonke, it's Frank,by the way...smile

I thought this was a twiddle Frank! very effective, do you know anything about it?
Frank L Croston.: Moi ! Twiddle? smile No, we should have asked the guys who's stall it was, maybe if we go again.
Very clever image Frank well done.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, pretty much straight out of the can...smile
