Be still my beating flower drum song!
Zena & I were headed to the tailor & I spotted this big swath of color.
The wall is almost like a tile, and there are no first story windows.
I used a neighboring second story porch to take a lot of the shots.
This looks great if you blow it up.
The face is fantastic from a gluttony of angles & perspectives.

Perfect post for the update St. George Day1
I hadn’t thought of that, but you’re right!
Amazing, so fascinating… 🙂
🙂 I love this mural. In Ottawa now, and hope I find something good here.
The colours are incredible, Resa. What a wonderful surprise for you, just around the corner… 😉
It was literally around a corner! I hope I find such neat surprises in Ottawa! 🙂 xx
Hope you’re enjoying yourself… Think you must be.. 🙂
Gorgeous. Hope you’re having fun at work. Love this artwork.
So far so good on the work/fun front, and I’m keeping my eyes open for street art here in Ottawa! Looks like I’ll be here for July 1, which is Canada;s July 4th. I’m a mere few blocks from our Parliament buildings & apparently the fireworks are exceptional.
A big swath of color indeed … and a beautiful woman as the centerpiece.
Agree, and I’ve just got to find some street art here in Ottawa!
FYI: I’m trying to get some posts together featuring murals here. … and all because of you. 🙂
This one is amazing!
I love it!
Absolutely great… I love the details and realism in the portraits…. Wonderful finding, dear Resa. Sending love and best wishes. Aquileana ✨🌟
It’s wonderful that art can be found in the streets! Sending warm wishes & love back to you! TY for the retweets!!! There were no prompts to like or retweet. I might get it all one day! xx ⭐
Your photography is always breath-taking and wow!
Resa, you are the sweetest and wonderful person in the whole world. 🙂
Thank you my dear Charlie! It really is a breathtaking work.
You are quite adorable, yourself. I think you are like a questioning beat poet. I’m like a wide-eyed hippy.
I’m a beat-poet resurrected as William Burroughs. 🙂
You are so beautiful and kind. I respect and treasure you. 🙂
You’re right. It looks great magnified.
Thank you for checking it out, Bumba! You are quite the cool dude!
Ditto. And you’re also a shrewd judge of character!
Love the colors Resa, and the beautiful face is exquisite! 🙂
I luv the face! 🙂 I’m working in Ottawa with about an hour a day for fun. lol! 🙂 🙂
When you have fun, it’s FUN. 🙂
That is one true & beautiful philosophy, and that is why I like you so much! 🙂
Great idea with the image warping! Looks really impressive. I love the slideshow too.
TY, Inese! I always love your comments. Hope all is well with & for you!
That is brilliant, the level of detailing and the fact that they had to factor in the tiles as well is very impressive. Life would be that bit more dull if you ween;t around to showcase such wonderful art.
Brilliant is a perfect word! I drove by a wolf mural third day in Ottawa! I will hopefully get it on Friday!
Ah, teasing us with murals already, love it!
This one is amazing – great capture of the subjects face and surrounding details.
I love murals with faces! I can’t take enough shots.
AN amazing mural. AND even better, great pics of it.
It is amazing! It’s fun to take shots of murals. I find them & other street art inspiring!The trailer for your book is inspiring!
Yir too kind. Truly. Thank you. I am just noticing you have other pictures here to the right of the comments, of more murals. Amazing. I think it’s brilliant when you see murals looking down on the world. I can see you love photographing them. x
I like this vibrant color!
