Writing with Light

A Most Unusual Gin

Walking through Soho one day I almost missed this mural. Can you imagine? I was talking and not paying attention but luckily, as I was about to cross the street a car was coming through the intersection which made me stop. When I looked across the street this is what I saw.

  11. Wow! What a superb fresco – it really adds interest to what otherwise would have been a very blank wall. Where’s Soho? The only one i know of is in London.

    • Thanks so much Andy. Soho or South of Houston is a neighbourhood in Manhattan.
