detail of mural on columbia pike branch of arlington county library - click to see larger section of mural

This is a detail from a mural (clicking will pop up a larger detail, though still not the entire mural) on the Columbia Pike branch of the Arlington Country Library and Career Center, which I pass by on my way walking to and from work. Lately I’ve been carrying my camera with me and noticing more of what’s around me, and the other afternoon I really paid attention to the mural for the first time. And of course my mind started to fall right into the gutter; I keep getting the mental image of Woody Harrelson in The Cowboy Way, when he comes out of the house naked holding his cowboy hat over his crotch; then, when told to put his hands up, and does, the hat stays put.
