A hand-painted gnome is shown on a window outside the Haddon Hill Cafe Tuesday, Jan. 29, 2013 in Oakland, Calif. Small paintings of gnomes that have popped up on utility poles have become a community sensation in Oakland, prompting Pacific Gas & Electric Co. to say Tuesday that it will keep them in place for now. The portraits on 6-inch blocks of wood began going up last year in an apparent effort to brighten up the blue-collar California city. There are currently more than 2,000 of the images on utility poles, with many screwed to the bases. (AP Photo/Eric Risberg)
