My Thank You Tribute To Resa

Not so long ago, my dizzy spells and skull pounding headaches returned, breaking my spirit. Like an angel in the night (or out of an alley) Resa delivered a post dedicated to me. This beautiful gesture returned light and hope to my little hut.

Laguna Gri Gri is one of the Dominican Republic’s major bird sanctuaries, set along a peaceful lagoon flanked by thick mangroves. When I took these photos, my intention was to contribute a series of murals to Resa’ inspiring blog. Sadly, my health and the lockdown due to the virus extinguished my plans.

I will do my best to do this in Resa’s unique, artistic tour guide style.

This serious faced native who Lonely Author decided to name The Serious Faced Native is the first face we see as we enter the santuary. I believe the artist wanted to convey the…

Tallinn, Estonia – Street Art

This blue elk is absolutely beautiful!

Thanks to a very dear friend of mine, who travelled to Tallinn late last year. I got these fab pics.

The area I am showing is the old industrial area. All types of artists have moved in, and the area is gentrifying. This is the main square, of that area. Notice a couple of men at a magazine stand far right, but first a couple of closer ups.

Here’s the magazine stand. There is a wonderful owl over it.

The wings of the world are below. You stand in the centre, and have your photo taken. You’ll look like an angel.

I call them “wings of the world”, because they are in many, many cities around the world. I know where there are 3 sets of wings in Toronto, and I can walk to them all.

Turn the wings corner, and find yourself in a graf writing paradise!

More street art.

Tallinn City’s population is 427,000. The city centre is a mix of fabulous old world, and modern architecture.

Below is L’opéra national “Estonia”

Mermaid Corner

Traffic heavy corner, and the best spot was in the middle of the street.

 Middle of the street was a no go, so, I took the first 2 shots & the 6th shot from across the street.

I took these next 3 from the same side of the street.

I thought, it’s black and white, so I put it through a black and white filter for the next pic.

Red Dawn

Some beautiful words by Holly and a gorgeous video. I’m neck deep in paperwork, but will be back to my abnormal routine next week. In the meantime, enjoy this!

House of Heart

At night we entwine
interlacing tendrils weaving
bodies stretching, limbs
reaching, giving way, every ripple
replicated in the amber sand.
Nights are as sweet as dew drops
on a rose and each breath is a vow.
A silent Oracle I inscribe Arabesque
across the grain of your skin
so that when you wake
you will remember.

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.
