Jimi & Jimmy

I have only posted one other piece of what looks like street art, but it’s actually advertising something.

Obviously this mural is advertising Jimmy’s Coffee. Jimmy’s Coffee is a local Toronto business that began in 2009. It has several outlets now.

It’s a well done black and white mural, with the coffee cups in bright yellow. I am presenting the mural both as is, and through different filters.

I like the all black and white best.

The portraiture looks fab to me!

Jimi Hendrix & Jimmy Page …. 2 fantastic guitar players!

There are only 3 other indoor murals in my collection. Oddly enough they are portraits of famous people. They decorate a pool hall in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

Resa In Wonderland

So, I found this alley that was like Alice’s Wonderland, in a way.

Then, when I went to post it, the Classic Editor was GONE. Now, I’m in another type of wonderland.

I had a lovely chat with one of the happiness engineers.

I’m not getting my old editor back, but there is an classic-ish option within the blockhead. I’m using that for as long as possible.

I was quite upset, wanted to cancel my account. However, I’ve made so many pals out here, that I just could not bear the thought of not blogging.

🦉 Tim’s Having Baby Owls! 🦉

Well, okay Mama & Papa owls on Timothy Price from Off Center Not Even‘s property are having the babies.

The eggs have been laid.

Mom’s in the nest.

Dad’s getting food.

…. and bringing it home.

Tim’s owls are not white. They are dark colours. However, these are the owls I found on a garage door.

The eggs should be hatching in April. It’s always a wonderful time when the eggs hatch. The feeding and raising begins. The babies learn to fly, and leave home.(Heartbreak)

O Hálito

O hálito’ means the breath in Portuguese.

The artists address the environmental disasters being perpetuated by humanity.  “The Breath” is a nod to the Amazon Forest fires that, inasmuch as I can, tell rage to this day.

These fires are created to maintain society’s greed for growth. They may irreversibly damage the world’s lungs.

Bret the Hitman Hart

I ❤️ Bret Hart!

I’m the short one with the bangs. We worked together on a movie directed by Eric Stoltz .

Never knew what to make of this wall art.

Now, I’m thinking, maybe he got into the ring w/Bret?

Okay, so I’m trying to use up my superfluous pics of street art.

Wandering into the alleys of my life at the same time.
