Take your protein pills and put your helmet on!
It’s in a very narrow lane, and difficult to photograph.
I kept hearing this song (in my mind), as I shot this.

What a great mural. Goes so well with Space Oddity.
It popped into my mind the second I laid eyes on this piece.
Love this! I love the music video you added. It’s so perfect! xo
I heard this song, as I shot. There was nothing else. xoox
Perfect wall art and music! xoxo
Ashes to ashes,
Funk to funky
I do hope Major Tomisina
isn’t a space junkie!?
Strung out in heaven’s high
Hitting an all-time low
I don’t know, but something is going on under the helmet
not to be confused with Under the Boardwalk.
Being a drifter🐰 I can hear the
happy sound of the carousel 🎠
from under the Major’s helmet 🎶
Hmmm, I was thinking more like smoke gets in her eye. 🙂
Well, it’s certainly coming out of her eye!
The instant I saw this, began singing this in my head. The stupid thing is, I can’t get it out.
It’s been looping for about 8 days now. I might have to go mad! 😳
Hee, hee. You’re welcome.
Oh, perfect! Yes, I do see Major Tomisina and I bet DB would too! What a find, Resa and great job capturing it, however narrow… Happy Wednesday, or should I say Happy Hump Day! ❤🌷❤
Hump day… and I don’t even know one camel.
If I did know a camel, I would love it and hug it.
I agree, DB would probably really like this!
Right?! I would too… Actually wait.. I have met one when I was very young [like 11] in Egypt and he even took me on a ride [more like race due to a misunderstanding of the camel owners! …funny story!] to the Pyramids! Beautiful beings they are too! xoxoxoxoxo
Oh, I’m sure camels are wonderful. Lucky you got to meet and ride one! xoxoxoxox
You certainly have some amazing art upon the walls of Toronto. Here people tend to write just rude words on walls…it’s not the same; not art. Wit occasionally yet for the main part debatable spelling. My youngest son did take a photo of one such rude scribbling that did induce laughter. I shall have to get him to send me a copy, for in just a couple of badly chosen words it defines the shortcomings of English street art. Regards, TOF
Alright, share the scribbled laugh, please!
It’s true, the city is a veritable outdoor Art Gallery.
I adore it, and can hardly wait for the next day above freezing. I heard of a wall I want to see. It’s about 45 minutes away.
What a lovely concept…a reality where you live. An outdoor Art Gallery. Magic…if only England had panache. Still only a few weeks and I’ll be in France for the first of this years escapes. Like your Toronto, art is everything in France.
Perfect match. Great art and music. Love it.
IKR! Now, if I can just get that song to quit looping in my head!!!
Street art is our mirror, a way to see the world in ways that envision the possibilities as realities. Another wonderful post and conversation, Resa!
I agree! Street art is a mirror. And… we get to see other peoples reflections in those mirrors, not just our own. x
Great post and pics, you had me with the song, one of my favorites, and is it me or does the model in the space suit look like Grace Jones. 😉
Maybe a bit like her older self. A young Grace Jones is quite different from this.
I adore the song, too!
What a gorgeous mural! Thanks for sharing it, Resa. I really love this one. And I miss David Bowie… 😦 Hugs on the wing.
Beautiful, cool and very spacy!
I’m pretty sure you know this version of the Space Oddity by the Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield too 😉 :https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KaOC9danxNox
Thank you! No, I didn’t know this version, but I do now! It’s very good.
Perfect mix of music to mural, Sorceress!!
Thanks, Thunder! 😘
Narrow lanes, trees and cars are the curse of street art photographers… 😉
Well done Resa…
Thank you! 😀
