Girl with Guitar

This was a challenge to shoot.

It had been raining off and on, this day. From how dry the cement was under the white car, I figured the person must work at Long and McQuade.

I hung around anyway. Eventually, the red car moved.

Did my best without a direct on shot.

 

Here’s my fave girl with a guitar. I always thought this song was titled Mermaid Cafe. I also just realized, Joni plays a dulcimer in this song. Oh well!

The piece is unsigned, but the guitar is a Les Paul

Luv Cat

I fell in love with this cat art.

I did my best, but it was in a dead end crevice, about 4 feet wide.

There was no backing up within the slot, to shoot.

I shot weird angles from the street at the edge of the crevice, and from across the street.

The pics aren’t great. There was no way to capture the entire piece, but the cat is so fab, I’m sharing anyway.

Wild Life

It’s a sweet, imaginative piece in a parking lot.

I mean, here’s Toronto’s cityscape, CN Tower and all, with a parrot and elephants.

… and a BUNNY!

The wall dints in & out.

BEST PART OF THE MURAL IS THE CAT BELOW

Around the final corner is a trapped elk.

At least I caught his reflection.

Not only was he trapped by a car,

… he was imprisoned, which is how I found the painting. I had to find out how to get a better shot of him. That’s when I found the rest!

The Great Wall of China

This is a classic style Graffiti Mural. It has an image & writing.

This is part of the Seven Wonders of the World series in Chinatown east.

Recently, Professional Moron posted a book review on the book: The Great Wall of China: by Franz Kafka. Below is an image of the wall that goes with the post. Click on the pic to go to that post.

Many facts about the Great Wall are spelled out in the post, and it definitely worth reading.

Reggae, the King’s Music

I went to a unique area of the city to get this fab Reggae mural.

Artist: Adrian Hayles

When I found it, it was in a parking lot filled with cars. Yay, reflections!

I only knew basic history of Haile Selassie. However, if you are interested, as I was  you can read the BBC article: Rastafrian Beliefs Regarding Haile Selassie

Artist: Adrian Hayles

Moving on, it looks like Bob Marley leading into Haile Selassie …
