This was one of many unexpected finds in the Bloor W. area.
I love the b&w white chalk on slate feel.
He’s hideous…. a devil!
Why are bad boys so exciting?
The above shot blows up beautifully, and has one of the filters my Google Photos features.

Why are bad boys so exciting.?
Can’t tell, don’t find boys exciting even not the bad ones… 😀 😀 😀
Always wondered about how mothers know all that
they warn their daughters about.? 🙂
Well, my dear LDN, you look like a bad boy. However, your posts are clever, smart &/or inquisitive. Lol… I suppose that makes you an intriguing entity. 😉 x 😀
*Mothers’ reserve all judgements.*
Love the black and white…this is very cool.
It is very cool, and as I always say: wish you could see this for real.
I do wish I was there to photograph it …and you. It looks great either way
Aww, thank you! It really is fun searching out, finding and shooting graf!
Happy New Year Resa! Love what you continuously share! Hugs and blessings my sister!
Happy New Year, Wendell!
Hugs to you, and if I’m allowed…. blessings for you! 😀
Ha ! That’s the best place for the devil, splattered on a wall 💥 😈 💥
Stay safe and warm dear Resa. Ralph xoxox 😇 ❤ #<
Okay, I’ll stay warm, which is quite expensive. Hopefully the infrastructure keeps working.
Enough fun! xoxo ❤ <#
I can understand how expensive heating can be as your rooms are quite large. Maybe you can wrap J&J around you. They’ll keep you warm my friend. 🙂 ❤ xoxox #<
This is stunning! Thanks very much for sharing. As for bad boys? Fun for a bit, and then you move on. As for when to do that, my favourite thought on that comes from my mother and her thoughts on St. Augustine’s “Save me God, but not yet!” view on forgiveness. Given it worked out for him (what with the sainthood and all), she figured we can all be afforded a bit of fun before getting all responsible about life.
I agree, fun for a bit, move one & mature!
I like your white chalk on slate comment and agree it looks great. I can see the word “Release” in the pattern of the devils cape along with another word which possibly looks like “Japas” ? I’m intrigued by what the second word might be? Any ideas?
I think it means Japanese tapas, like sushi!
OR:a character in a Zelda video game, or a god.
Aha! I wasn’t being lazy – I just didn’t think to look it up. Cheers. Have a good week, Mr C 🙂
Cheers! Honestly, I hadn’t noticed the 2 words. Thank you very much for pointing them out! You are very observant. 😀
So, perhaps it means “realize god”?
That’s what is good about sharing photos. People will see the image differently from the person who shot it. People will often comment on an aspect of the composition of one of my photos or notice some detail that my eye hadn’t been drawn to. I know that when I’m taking photographs I can be focused on light or excluding things from the frame and it is only when I get the image up on my computer that I start to see things differently. I enjoy it when people spot things I’ve missed….
Keep up the great work in 2017. Best wishes, Mr C 🙂
I bet you could tell us a thing or two about bad boys! 😉 😉
Haha! Yeah, but I’ve left them in the dust! Lol! 😀 😀 xxox
A great dichotomy. Bad & good, Beauty and bad boy. The true definition and balance of our world today. This art is beautiful. I love it. 🙂
I agree, it is very like our world! 😀
This is so graphic and beautiful!
so symbolic too!
I agree with you! I was very excited to find this piece. I walked for 3 hours and this is one of the pieces of art I found.
Well, at least it’s a healthy hobby!
B&W looks are very common. Good find. Mr. Devil looks quite devilish!
He does look devilish! I really like the black and white theme. 😀
Wow, this monochrome work is fantastic!
