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.

View to a Cityscape

I adore this art piece.

The above shot is taken using the Pano setting on my Iphone. However, instead of panning side to side, I turn the camera on its side and pan up from the bottom. Hence, the curve, which I like!

The reflected skyline view in the sunglasses seems reasonably correct. However, one lens is from the lake view, and the other from the land view.

It faces a parking lot. The car reflections come from quite high up, so sometimes are not as crisp, as usual.

There are reflections in the windows on the other side of the parking lot. These windows are about the 6th story.

 

A Mural of My Own!

Look at this gorgeous Monarch with 3 Burners.

Nick Sweetman did the Monarch. He even put a crown on it.

THE MONARCH

From my swing

I spot the Monarch

sipping from a nectary,

gently I snare him

by his dew drenched wings.

I wonder if he knows

his fate lies in my hands.

Clutched between my fingers

imagine how his heart pounds.

19 years ago, there were clouds of Monarchs during migration season. 5 years ago, I did not see even 1 Monarch. So, 4 years ago we planted Milkweed in the back yard. It is the only plant Monarchs lay eggs in.

I’d also heard that they are attracted to their own colours, and colours of the Milkweed. Ours is green and orange. It took until this summer to get the painting organized. I’m pleased to say that I saw about 50- 100 Monarchs this year.

The wall was constantly being tagged. This is what it looked like before the painting.

The best is; since the Burners were painted…not 1 tag!
