Portrait of Kurt

This portrait is of Kurt, who was delivering mail for Cedar’s Sinai  Medical Center, Beverly Hills, CA, USA. This picture is interesting because usually, in Beverly Hills, people are running around in shorts, and tank tops, you know The Fun In The California Sun Look. But there was Kurt, bundled in rain gear, and pushing a cart covered to the max with protective tarp. It was such an unusual sight for Beverly Hills.

Kurt did not have time to talk to me at all because he had to go to the mail room. Below was the “mail room.” Yes, the mailbox is the mail room. It confounded me that in an institution that literally has the best brain surgeons in the world would mislabel a mailbox as the mail room. I seriously don’t think Kurt, his hand-truck, the mail and all that rain gear  fit in the little mail room below. Luckily, there was a normal door next to the mislabeled box and Kurt disappeared through the door, never letting me find out anything about him.

  1. If brain surgeons can label a mail box a mail room, how much does that say for their brain surgeries?

  2. Great portrait of Kurt and very unusual for Beverly Hills as you stated but a fun portrait none the less.
