UP Magic – Three

This is the last post of the Nick Sweetman mural.

It’s the other side, and it’s much shorter than across the road.

Here’s the entrance to the underpass. I’m walking south, now, on the east side of the street.

OMG, look at that terrifyingly cute otter! (I think it’s an otter) Again, even though a cloudy day, the sun burns into the underpass.

The very adorable otter with its native spirit depiction.

After all that excitement, there is an owl.

What a beauty!

Okay, next we have, an Ibis? At first, when I was in the underpass, I got very excited to see an ostrich and its chick. I see now, I was completely off track.

OMG, this chick is sooo cute, it could be a Chicklet!

What’s that big furry thing in the foreground?

Wow, it’s a fox. Hope he doesn’t turn around and see all those birds!

What made across the street a longer post, is the wall beyond the underpass.

Underpass Magic – One

Thanks to Nick Sweetman for making this drab underpass into a thing of beauty!

Let me begin where I entered, on the east side, walking north.

There is a railing to protect us from the thundering traffic.

Of course that makes it hard to shoot large images. You can’t get far enough back.

Also, there are many light issues in underpasses. Even on a cloudy day, the burn of the sun can be seen.

I am presenting the images in order.

This, I guess possum, is so cute!

He is right there as you emerge from the underpass.

Just look at all the art still ahead!

There is the other side of the underpass, as well. I was able to take a few more direct shots from the other side.

Even if the railing was in the way,

I didn’t have to get as creative with the shots, such as the next 2.

This could only be taken from the other side. Unfortunately, the buffalo & moose were behind cement pillars. I suppose they needed those to hold the overpass up.

We had a quick chat on the day. He still had 2 days of painting to go.

The next post has a swan, a butterfly, a mosquito and more!

I love it when I look up, out of the blue, and find Street Art!

Street Art has conditioned me to look in all directions, including up.

This is a very appealing piece, by Kizmet 32.

🦄 Cumpleaños de Aquileana 💜

🎂 Happy birthday, dear Aquileana! 🎂

We’ve shared many posts, and all are very special to me.

Other than the opening shot, I’m moving left to right.

I’ve been saving this mural for a special occasion. Wishing you a wonderful birthday, and thanking you for all the spectacular posts we’ve done together is a perfect time.

Of course, I was hoping to find some Scorpio themed street art with a Scorpion in it, but no such luck.

However, this First Nations inspired art is filled with the mystic,

much like Greek Mythology and the Tarot,

… and much like you.

🦄 HAPPY BIRTHDAY,  AQUILEANA 💜
