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.

Canada Geese

I wasn’t expecting to find this.

It is so subtle you can miss it, as many passerby’s did.

I wasn’t that impressed, at first. Later, when I looked at the shots, I fell in love.

I had to take the top geese from across the street.

I crossed the street to capture the lower geese. Being so close was not the best perspective.

Yet, when I got home and saw the odd angles I deployed, I was pleased with the gaggle’s cacophony.

Kiss Me! w/Bonus

Shot from a ramp 2 stories above the mural.

This piece is in the locked outdoor courtyard of a restaurant.

I came back 3 times, as the sun’s intensity changed.

The white to the right bottom corner are the outdoor tables, covered with a tarp and featuring a filthy puddle from melted snow.

JEEP CLEANS HER FOOT

Pop Art Mural

This mural is  painted over paste-ups.

The first part was easy enough to capture, as I could step back. As it goes along the ramp, there is less and less space. It’s tighter than many alleys, and it is a high story above my head.

So, I’ll do my best to impart the feel and flow, starting left to right.

Who is that woman below?

Above you can see the paste-up disintegrating.

Dali meets Warhol!

Kizmet 32

I’ve posted similar Kizmet 32 faces before.

These ones were driving me crazy. I would always see them driving by. No way to take pics.

Then suddenly one day, I saw it parked.

The Pollinators

This sweet mural by Nick Sweetman, is an awareness tribute,

… to some of the most important pollinators on our planet.

The mural turns 3 corners. I will do my best to show it left to right. The above shot was taken from across the street. Cars, vans, trucks and busses dominated 19 of the 20 shots I took.

I used pano for this. It captures the zig-zag of the 3 walls.

I did a sideways pano for the above pic.

Spring is 4 weeks away!

The car wasn’t much of a problem,

.. and I grabbed a couple of window reflection shots.
