Photos Of BSA #5: Calla Lillies

Happy Holidays! We’re celebrating the end of one year and the beginning of the next by thanking BSA readers, friends, and family for all of your support in 2022. We have selected some of our favorite shots by our Editor of Photography, Jaime Rojo, and we’re sharing a new one every day to celebrate all our good times together, our hope for the future, and our love for the street.

Calla lilies remind us of Diego Rivera, the Mexican muralist who used them often in his paintings. We think of the Mexican mural movement, of painters such as José Clemente Orozco and David Alfaro Siqueiros – and their connection to the community murals of today. This year we see these calla lilies, and we think of Maria Esther, with all our love.
