Found in LA Glendale: Jesus

Glendale, home to IHOP, Nestle and a population that is more than 50% foreign born is now home to Jesus. Photographer Philip R. Cloutier took this picture and through some divine punishment... well, we'll let him explain:

[This was the] last picture taken before I slipped off the back of the bus stop bench I was standing on to get the right angle for this picture. I busted my knee and my camera, shattering the Canon EF 50 lens into pieces. I'm okay, but walking with a cane for the time being and having to explain to co-workers that I injured myself in a photography accident (they assumed it was from skiing).

Does anyone notice the spooky similarities between the barbed wire and a crown of thorns?Photo by Philip R. Cloutier (nailmaker) via the LAist Featured Photos pool on Flickr
