Life is Beautiful – Beverly Hills, California

It was a long and productive day of sightseeing. We went to The Getty Center and had dinner in Little Tokyo. On the way back to the hotel, we did a short stop at Beverly Hills. For this last photo, just down from the Beverly Wilshire, this street sculpture.

I didn’t give deep thought to this piece, not realizing its significance. But any theme that even vaguely smacks of photography is a winner in my book. Here we have a tourist taking a picture of Life is Beautiful.

Thierry Guetta, an internationally acclaimed street artist — known as Mr. Brainwash — created the piece. He was a protégé of Banksy. This writeup and interview in Beverly Hills Courier tells his story.
