“and the little fish has dollar signs painted on it…  I only discovered these when I zoomed in….  Don’t know the connection there; but think it’s worth a mention.”

This shark seems quite dapper in his elegant bow tie.

Newcastle, Australia

“Just a little background on Newcastle:”

“Newcastle is a harbour city in the Australian state of New South Wales. Its plentiful beaches are linked by the Bathers Way, a coastal walk stretching between Nobbys Beach and Merewether Beach. The walk provides access to Bogey Hole, a convict-built ocean bath from the colonial period. Also on the path is the 1880s Fort Scratchley, a historic site and a viewpoint for spotting migrating whales.”

Although there are no whales on these boxes, Carolyn says:

“I’ve seen the migrating whales a couples of times. They are absolutely majestic! I especially love it when a mother and babe glide effortlessly, and seemingly slowly through the water. A brilliant sight.”

Pussy Cat Eyes

A little power box art, while I finish sorting out the new alley art.

Artist: Daniela Rocha

I’ve been back 3 times, and there were 18 pieces painted over a weekend.

Artist: Daniela Rocha

I am now certain, all of it was painted by women.

Artist: Daniela Rocha

Next post will be from that alley, and by this artist. It’s just that I wanted to post this Pussy Cat first.

Artist: Daniela Rocha

The traffic was endless,

…so I did what I could to capture the road side of the box.

Argentina – Independence Day

On July 9, 2017, Argentina has 201 years to its independence history.

Artist: Cesar Alonso Rodriguez

I felt Argentina when I saw this mini-mural, so I sent a pic off to Aquileana from La Audacia de Aquiles, after all, she lives in Argentina.

Artist: Cesar Alonso Rodriguez

She replied, “YES that graffiti certainly seems to depict Argentina…. Tango… Perhaps milongas ( a tango style).”

Artist: Cesar Alonso Rodriguez

It’s like I can hear and feel the music all the way up here in Canada!

And two pics from the streets nearby it”

“Boca Juniors is one of the two most popular football clubs in Argentina…. Alongside River Plate…. they hate each other… I am a Boca Juniors´fan :D”

“The iconography of these murals is very ARGENTINE.”

“In (some of) Caminito´s murals you can see a typical family and a technique to write words called FILETEADO.”

“You can Google: Caminito, Buenos Aires, Argentina to see the location, etc…”

I certainly did, and it looks very interesting, not just the location, but the shops and the views!

⭐ THANK YOU ! ⭐ Aquileana

Your contributions are fabulous! I have learned more about Argentina in doing this one post, than in my entire life. (except for about Eva Peron)

Flower Power Box

Toronto is going all out, hiring many artists to paint power boxes.

Artist: Jon McTavish

This one grabbed me, big time!

Artist: Jon McTavish

At first, the closer I got the better it looked.

Then the farther I got, the better it looked.

I walked away, and realized the other side was just as fabulous!
