On the way to the Fox Theater, I saw this cutout trying to interact with passers by. As I was working on this photo, I kept thinking of a line from the W.C. Field movie 'Its a Gift.' While moving his family to California, Fields mistakes an expensive estate for a picnic area and, upon crashing into a statue of the Venus de Milo, exclaims "she ran out right in front of me!."

    I especially love how the people who are walking on the sidewalk appear to be oblivious to the charm of the cutout who really is stealing the show:) Great find and shot!
