Back in the Alleys

All the BGF’s & dog have been cooped up.

We stayed home.

Some restrictions have been lifted, under certain conditions.

Happy to say, I am back in action in my beloved alleys, and observing conditions.

Prince Paste-Up

I don’t find a lot of paste-ups any more. However, in this time of Covid, the paste and run mentality makes total sense.

I adore Prince, and was beyond thrilled to find this.

It’s brilliantly pasted over a throw-up. I loathe throw-ups.

My fave Prince song, and one of my fave vids….ever!

I’d love to see your fave Prince song/vid. Please post the link & not the actual video in your comment. A Frank Angle taught me that… so my browser won’t crash.

You enter the link, but add 1 character after the link. It will come out a link, and not a vid! Don’t worry if you didn’t get it right. I’ll make it right! Love & Peace!

 

Blue Wolf

I fell in love with this classic piece of alley art the second I laid eyes on it!

I shot from across the oddly busy alley, by a parked car. Parked cars offer a huge bit of protection from moving traffic.

The car also worked well for reflections. Note the woman’s face at the bottom of the reflection. This is from a mural I posted last year, & it’s on the side street. Cool, huh?

Then I shot strange angles from the side of the street the mural was painted on.

Raphael?

I was looking for a specific face in an network of alleys off Dundas West.

I searched for over 2 hours, about 8 miles. I’ve still about 1o miles of alley to cover. I’ve got to find the face!

In the meantime, here’s an angel.

The snow and mud semi-ruined my new white Rebox sneakers. Uch.

All in all, a lovely find.
