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 …

The Artist:

In 1788 Robert Burns sent the poem ‘Auld Lang Syne’ to the Scots Musical Museum, indicating that it was an ancient song but that he’d been the first to record it on paper. Read the original & modern lyrics!

Urban Hummingbird

This fabulous hummingbird is part of a massive mural in Toronto’s east end Chinatown.

How perfect to thank Cindy Knoke for her contributions to Kids’ Month.

After all, Cindy is the winner of the best and most hummingbird posts, ever!

This shot blows up beautifully!

Of Course the mural is not all about the hummingbird.

There are more aspects to this beautiful work.

Such as this flower at the opposite end, or are they leaves that look like a flower?

Mountain peaks and

… and mountain  terraces to a shrine.

It was very difficult to shoot this with my IPhone.

The pic above is cropped. I had to stand quite far away to capture it in 1 piece.

Well, maybe it is all about the hummingbird, and its flower!
