John Coltrane & Billie Holiday

I was all shivers when I found this outstanding mural in east end Toronto.

Lucky me! There were reflections in windows across the street.

    1. Thank you about my photos!
      The pics are wow, because the art is fabulous. Coltrane’s eyes are amazing in this piece. It is wonderful to see this in the street!

    1. It is an outstanding work. 😀 It was on theother side of town, and worth the trip over there. I found 2 other fab murals. I always seem to post my faves first, though. xoxoxo

    1. I agree, it is outstanding. I love the sparkling eyes! I was lucky enough one day to bump into a graffiti artist in the alley behind my home. I asked how they made sparkles and star shines with a can of spray paint, and he showed me!

    1. It was a thrilling mural to shoot! It was a very good day, even if my cats won’t come for a walk with me. Lol! I also found an animal mural that day. It’s mostly dogs and cats, and it’s as sweet as can be! Love to you and Hera! xoxoxoxoxoooxoxoxoxoxo

    1. I don’t know! Maybe Judy Holliday knows?
      Anyway… I hate wearing jeans, and I don’t have any pics of me wearing all black, which I pretty much live in. Maybe a black gown? Looking into it!

  2. Great, extraordinary! I love!!
    Today’s post has a wonderful soundtrack, Eleanora and John, two of the best …
    You have found a good collaborator, that window is priceless 🙂 🙂

    1. The windows are cool! 😀 I adore reflections. It is wonderful portraiture for street art! So much talent, and lots of fun! Hugs and have a fab weekend! 😀

    Oh, my …!! This time you’ve outresad Resa! First – how can it be that Toronto is such a graffiti gold mine. Second – your pics of the window reflections just leave me breathless!

    1. Well, sometimes artists just get permission from the owner, and do their own thing. Sometimes they are commissioned and sometimes you just wake up in the morning and there is art on your home. All in all, I love it!

      1. Yeah, I figured that was probably how it worked but I just thought I would clarify. When it is good weather again here, I should get to downtown Redding and take some pictures of a few of the largest murals on buildings there. I don’t know why I’ve never thought of it before! 🙂
