Isn't It Ironic? by Kate Purdy

Poor, beautiful Princess Di’s portrait is prominently displayed on the
outside wall of a “Gentlemen’s” Club in Richmond, Va. I snapped this contradiction while my sister careened down the city streets with me yelling at her to stop; which by the way, she didn’t.

    Sorry, seestor….didn’t realize I could be stunting one of the world’s greatest photographers!
    To see the world through your pictures I have a whole new appreciation. By the way, sadly this painting is no longer a part of the Richmond city landscape.

    Very nice capture! – Amy

  • Thanks, Amy. I did the best I could from a moving vehicle, it was too unusual to not give it a shot.
