In the beautiful, inspiring and fun Ossington alley running North from Queen West, every garage door, space in between and back of the building is painted.
I start with the IPhone panorama shot, rose centered, to minimize the effect of a giant red tag on the gorgeous rose.The Stag garage is on the rose’s left as you look at your screen.
This shot looks South to Queen W. Behind me, the miles of painted alleys run all the way to Bloor Street.
Yes, there are a lot of tags. In the summer, many artists will return to touch up their tagged pieces.
I searched what to call a male deer. It said “Buck” for North America, and “Stag” for Europe, especially when referring to the Red Deer.
Amy Pinkrose popped into my mind when I saw the rose. Her flowers are beauties that spring from the dark earth. This rose is a flower that has sprung forth from the dark grey of dirt and garbage in a very urban alley.
