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!

Kizmet Blue Girls

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.

Street Art Speaks

I was tingling with joy when I found this exquisite piece.

I couldn’t take enough pics.

Then, at home, when I looked at the pics I’d uploaded I saw

… a message on the alley curb below it.

Did the artist of this face put it there, or was it already there?

It doesn’t matter who put it there. I bring you this message, now.

“87 elephants Found in Botswana – DEAD – 1 of the Last Safe Havens 4 species.”

Many of us know the elephants are in trouble.

Taking pics of faces from different angles, is interesting.

🎶Squirrels in White Satin🎶

It’s news to me! We have White Squirrels in Toronto.

They seem only to be in Trinity Bellwoods Park. Yay! I live very close to the park, and will now be scouting the white squirrel.

I was wondering why an artist had chosen to paint the squirrels white, on this garage door.

They are rare.

One was found dead a couple of years ago, and the white squirrel people went crazy.

I hope I get to see one!
