I have a bad habit - I am superstitious. There, I've said it - whether or not that is a bad habit, you decide. They only other thing I could think of was that I chew the sides of my fingernails when I am stressed. I didn't think a picture of my hands would be that fascinating.
The background behind this image is another shot from the Hall of Justice Building in Sacramento, California. I worked closely with the contractor to build out the space. When construction began, there were odd noises that emanated from the fifth floor walk-up. There were no offices up there, only a long hallway that used to be used for target practice by the police.
So my iconic cubby was born - a velcroed cross and a kneeling angel. I figured that would be a start to keeping the things-that-go-bump-in-the-night at bay.
