In the narrowest of alleys is a testament of love. This shot is captured using the IPhone Pano setting sideways.
Clandestinos had a baby. The baby has a Guardian, a very scary and handsome one at that.
Nonetheless, the alley is almost impossible to shoot in, with my IPhone. So, I show it in dribs and drabs, beginning with the title above.
First up is this stunning violet coloured flower. Then some sweet flower buds.
The violet below is up so high I was only able to shoot this one pic.
This is the most I could capture in 1 shot, even using the Pano setting.
At the top end of the alley is the Guardian with a golden orange flower beneath.
No matter where I stood, this is the tallest I could capture. Yet, there is more on top of the purple mountains. Then I thought, why not use Pano sideways?
That is what resulted in the opening pic. It was difficult, as I had to use an upward arcing movement, which is a foreign sensation of movement.
Many times I began, then my wrist/fingers reacted oddly. This resulted in a split exposure. (above and below)

Bold and brilliant … Thumbs up!
Bravo, using the Pano sideways. I’ve actually never heard of or thought of that (not that I could have captured any of those brilliant shots). Love the beak.
Sideways Pano was an idea born out of desperation. Lol. The Mother Of Invention was with me.
Thank you for your comment, and yes, the beak is awesome.
Great find dear Resa and also a great idea to use panorama mode. Love from myself and Natascha xoxoxo ❤
Much love back to Ralph and Natascha’s Garden.
(When I fist saw the name, I thought it said Garden… not guardian) xoxoxo ❤
….. or Gordon Bennett ! lol 😳🙀 ❤ xoxoxo
Okay, Ralph, you’ve stumped me on this one! A euphemism for gorblimey? (I Googled the name)
You must be from England. Lol 😳🙀 ❤ xoxoxo
Cor blimey ! You found me out Resa. Yes, I am English ! I hope that won’t ruin our friendship. lol. ❤ xoxoxo
So very beautiful and you did a great job under difficult conditions.
Thank you! This was a wonderful discovery on a bleak winter’s day! 😀

Wow! So photography AND a workout 😉
Yeah, it’s about time we had a day nice enough to slip out for a mural. 😀 Of course it snowed all day yesterday and today is -16c. I’ve got some serious cabin fever going on!!!!! ⚡️💥
Here too… Sun is shining but dang…feels like -10C (balmy compared to the past week…)
Zeke is fed up with my newfound wimpyness
Oh dear! Well, tell Zeke that there’s 3 weeks until the first day of spring! Hopefully by then the wimpyness will have worn away! 😀
He will look at me with disgust because he knows I will say… oh, it’s too mucky outside and you are going to get gross 😉
He much prefers -10C and lower!
Oh no! Well, Zeke will be Zeke! 😀
Superb. Thank you. And you’ve just taught me something. Some street art is indeed hard to shoot. Things in the way. I need to start using the Pano. 🙂
Yay! Give it a good try! Pano works for some shots, for sure! 😀
I will. Be good Resa.
(BTW, is your name Persian?) (Sounds Parsi to me) 😉
I don’t think so, but who knows where names originate! 😀
Fantastic. I love the way the owl is done.
The owl is gorgeous! Bruno Smoky does very neat animals… story book like!
Great shots, Resa. Sideways pano; now that is very interesting! I’ll definitely give it a try. Not so easy I expect… 🙂
I do love the bolder murals like these. The colours are incredibly vivid..
Yeah, sideways Pano. I’ll be using it again, for sure! I adore this colourful mural! It was just painted about a month ago, so the colours are not just vivid, the fresh and bright! 😀 xoxoxoxo
What an owl and beautiful composition! Kudos to the photographer too!!!!! 😉 [and love!!] xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo
Agree and thank you and xxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo❦❦❦❦❦
and for Hera xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo!!!! ❦❦❦
I’d add an emoji of tail wags but there isn’t one… yet, so maybe: _\|/_ [lots of them]!
Here’s one by the same artists done in Bristol UK a few years ago … https://theartblogger54.wordpress.com/2019/02/28/street-art-collaboration-by-los-clandestinos-1/
Wonderful! TY for the link!
Nice work, both by the artist and you…:)
Thank you dear JMR! The art is spectacular. I’m thrilled my loving attempts to photograph it in a way that all can taste a bit of the experience, of seeing it for real, is appreciated !
Resa, I really, really like this one. Owls are the ultimate in coolness, colors vibrant and probably welcome on a bleak winter’s day. 😉
It’s a wonderful piece. I’m always grateful when an artist braves winter to make a new painting!
The colours are very welcome. 😀
Resa, such bold & beautiful photos. The colors, flower & eagle details stunning! The sideways pano your great discovery. I need to try that difficult maneuver with my iPhone XS Max. It has the best camera! I more or less focus, point & shoot. Happy Thursday! 📚🎶 Christine
Happy Friday! It is a very bold and beautiful piece. IPhones have amazing cameras! Have a fab weekend, Christine!
That’s one awesome back alley to hang about in. I love the piercing eyes.
It’s a beauty! 😀 Have a great weekend, Ste J
You too, my friend.
A testament of love was not an overstatement. Really beautiful and lovingly photographed too. The look of that owl. And the setting. Wow.
Agree! It’s a fabulous mural. & Thanks … I try to show some elements close up, so one gets a better feel for the Mural.
I was here last night and completely enchanted by this wall art. This holds a fabulous tropical flair for me, the big birds, the bright colors, it’s just marvelous! What a wall…love it!
It is a wonderful wall!! I’ve been sipping 🍷🍷🍷… ooops!
This is a fab mural, and I know that where you are in Miami… the tropical wine… I mean art depicts bright Riojas. Lol!
Really adore that Rioja! ❦❦❦
Absolutely! We love wall art here, Art Basel has become huge! A few mojitos and it becomes even more awesome. 😊😎🍹💞
I love the flowers so much but the owl is just magnificent. Well done on getting creative to bring us some shots of this beautiful work XxX
Thanks TVTA! It’s a very sweet and dynamic piece. xxx
Great timing with this one Resa as I cannot wait to see flowers in bloom here one day soon! Spring is in the air brrrrr the cold air 😉 And that owl, look at the detail!
The owl is fabulous! It’s snowing here, uch. Well, not counting today, 16 days to the equinox! 😀 YAY!!!
Aiii stay warm inside ~ we’re banning the “s” word here 😉
I just got the call that the G.S. book is in at my library branch. However, as it is -16 with s… flurries today, I might wait. I don’t know. I’m itching to pick it up!
Wait, dear Resa, wait until the weather is better for you to get there. So not worth any accident while traveling there and back. Hugs.
Fabulous art and your creative settings make it outstanding.
Thank you, Sidran! It’s so gloomy and cold here that it really is wonderful to find some vibrant art outside!
You seem to been creating a whole new art form here. I took some shots of some rather differ street art yesterday I found here in kingston, but now I want to go back with the Pano before I put a post up!!
Lol! I just love street art. Every mural or piece, I just get better at taking pics to share. I try to bring as full an experience, as I can to the viewer. There’s nothing like seeing the art in person, but I do the best I can to get close to it. Look forward to seeing the street art from your city!
This one is gorgeous Resa. It is worthy of having a name. The details of the eagle (I am guessing it is an eagle) are perfect. This is one of my faves.
It is a real beauty!
I think it’s an owl, but I’m not great at zoology. Whatever, the details are amazing!
Understandably a fave!
Very brillant, outstanding. Brings sunshine in my life. Michael
Agree! Hope spring has begun where you are!
Thank you, Resa! We have to wait some weeks more. Here is a region like Siberia. ;-( Best wishes, Michael
I agree with that!
One of the best so far! Love the colours too!
It’s a very rich in colour and style piece! I love it, too.
Well done! Such bright, beautiful colors!
It’s what an artist can do for his daughter. I think it’s quite sweet!
