Booth divider in a local taqueria.
They do have amazing fish tacos!
Functional art always captivates me.
Even though this may have been done
with computers and lasers and whatnot
and recreated by machine
dozens or hundreds of times,
someone with substantial artistic talent
had to create the original concept
that became this oft-overlooked
thing of beauty.
And I'm glad the shopowner
found it in his heart
to create an atmosphere
that is both fun and refined
so customers can
appreciate life and beauty
while gobbling delicious food.
