What the Helen of Troy is This? Vol. 5

DSCN7738, originally uploaded by Prince of Petworth.

A reader sent me an email that there was a bubble gum tree on 18th Street outside of Julia’s Empandas and suggested it might be a good Helen of Troy feature. I was so intrigued I headed over to 18th Street from 1st and R. And I’m glad I did. This is truly insane. Part of me thinks it is awesome and part of me thinks it’s rather foul. I suppose it’s an attempt at art? I think I’d be cooler with it if it was on a lamppost as I have a strong affinity for trees. What do you guys think?
