Happy Couple on a Bicycle

West 47th St. @ Ninth Ave., Manhattan, NYC, NY.
Full spectrum greyscale HDR + high definition infrared photo merger…

✍ The two-story wall mural once stood out in vivid yellow and blue... It is signed by French artist, cartoonist and children's book illustrator Jean-Jacques Sempé. He is also known for both cartoons and cover art in The New Yorker and other {primarily French} magazines. The piece is very difficult to photograph due to peeling yellow paint so I took two versions for good measure...

✍ I came across an old photo of this piece from ca. 1980 showing that there was more to the piece.... There was a little girl on a bicycle following the couple. That can be seen at the bottom of the page here for anyone interested.
