Everyday wonders

GuadalupeMosaic

Writers: Keep a camera handy. You never know when you’re going to run across something surprising and delightful — something you will want to remember, because you might use it in a story one day. It might be something you see from your car window as you drive down the street. It might be something that provides local color. It might be an unusual setting you could use. It might give you ideas for an action scene.

Or, as in the photo above, it might depict a miracle.

Yes: in the year 2013, that’s a pay phone.

It’s next to that glorious mosaic depicting Our Lady of Guadalupe. On the wall outside the East 1st Grocery, Cesar Chavez Street, Austin, Texas.
