On the first day of spring, I found a blue tiger,
…and I rose from the melted snow pile, like a Phoenix from a pyre.
As usual, I’m getting ahead of the mural. Here it is: left to right.
I adore this reflection!

Lovely find for the first day of spring. Love the eyes, and who wouldn’t like a blue tiger. 🙂
It was a great first day of spring! 😀
One of my favorites!
It’s a beauty!
I love that reflection too!
Thanks, Irina! There’s quite often cars parked by street art. It used to upset me, but now I just go with the flow of reflections. 😀
Oh wow…that Phoenix is stunning. Can’t stop staring at it.
You have a great eye and talent for capturing art with your own artistic hand
The phoenix is stupendous! Thank you for the compliment on my capturing of the piece. I try to bring a being right there experience when I present!
Oh my pleasure.
You absolutely do that. That’s one of the reasons I enjoy your posts so much xxx
Thank you! xx
So vibrant! Stunning artwork. Thanks for sharing. 🙂
You’re welcome! It really is a fab mural. 😀
Happy spring season, my sweet friend! Soooo I adore the art of the girl, but you know what? I also adore the way you created art of your own by photographing her reflection on the car. Seriously you created art from art!! Love you xo
I adore street art reflections in cars. It is for sure art out of art, and a rudely parked car! xoxoxo
This is the best way to begin the first day of Spring, And it is also a good was to begin any day of the rest of the year. A brilliant photo collection, Resa. Simply outstanding.
It was thrilling first day of spring. I found this and 2 more murals. Tomorrow, I’m hoping to get to one of David Suzuki’s Butterfly Way. It’s a wonderful project of butterflies all over the city.
Can hardly wait…
Oh, Resa…this is fantastic. The girl’s eyes are incredible. The blue tiger…yum. Just wonderful.
Agree, and all on the first day of spring!!!!!
Loving it all, Resa.
the artist – @ luvsumone… Hahah.. I awoke this morning singing the Jimmy Durante song (featured on Sleepless in Seatle):
Make someone happy,
Make just one someone happy;
Make just one heart the heart you sing to.
One smile that cheers you,
One face that lights when it nears you,
I believe you do this with every post… 🙂
I love that song, Durante and Sleepless In Seattle!
The art in the streets makes me happy too!
You make me happy, also!
The young girls face is as fierce as th face on the blue tiger.
There’s a powerful intensity in the mural. The colors are strong too.
Love it and the way it reflected in the car. 👍👍👍
Great photographs,Resa. Have a great weekend.
I agree with all you say! The mural is intense & pleasing to the eyes. I started photographing street art in cars’ reflections because that’s where they park…. by the art! Hope you’re having a fab weekend, and remember to have a great week ahead! 😀 ❦
I enjoy viewing the murals you post because each one is unique and very well done. They say a great deal. The techniques the artists use to create them is extraordinary. Keep discovering 👍😊😎
Extraordinary artist. Strikingly passionate images, bold colors. You did a great job of presenting this large mural, Resa. Hats off to you both.
Aww, thanks Jet! I agree, it’s a vibrant striking mural. It’s always a challenge and a joy to capture these works of art! So happy you like it!

Stunning mural, Resa, and your photographs are excellent.

The reflection in the car window is amazing. Almosty as if the pefrson was inside the car looking out.
