Pieces of Face

This lady has a fab make-up artist!

She lives across the lane, and up a bit from Major Tomisina.

Too, narrow for cars, it’s also almost too, narrow to shoot in. However, she’s got good angles.

I’ve wanted to shoot this for several years.

Thing is, it’s in Kensington Market on one of the main streets, and a slew of humanity is constantly walking by. The vehicular traffic is also a deterrent.

Today, a winter’s Monday was my opportunity.

It’s…. like… so cool!

There’s little else, no single. It’s the album or this unofficial bit.

I found this segment from the documentary about him quite interesting.

Mermaid Corner

Traffic heavy corner, and the best spot was in the middle of the street.

 Middle of the street was a no go, so, I took the first 2 shots & the 6th shot from across the street.

I took these next 3 from the same side of the street.

I thought, it’s black and white, so I put it through a black and white filter for the next pic.

The Gen Z Collective

Look who I found on a wall!

It’s Greta Thunberg, the most famous Gen Z person in the world. In the upper left is the word CURAE. It is Latin for “Take Care”.

Gen Z has a lot to say, and my long time friend, Elizabeth Gracen is providing them a platform to say it all.

Elizabeth, founder of Flapper Films and Flapper Press says in her introduction to the project, “I would create a platform so that they could upload their own videos to the project. The films would stream on Instagram and a YouTube Channel for those little screens they are all obsessed with.”

Is there a Gen Z  person in your family, who has something to say? Then check out The website !

You’ll be hearing more about Flapper Press  On both GLAM and Art Gowns in the future. My next Art Gown will be dedicated to Elizabeth, and I am very excited!

Echo Beach

Martha and The Muffins are a Canadian band.

Their main hit was “Echo Beach”, in the 80’s.

In 2014, Vogue Magazine pronounced Queen Street West the second  hippest street in the world.

Martha and the Muffins were part of the cultural evolution that made Queen St. so awesome.

It was music and all of the arts that flourished. Eventually graffiti & Street Art found its way here. I’m so thrilled to live on this street.

It’s amazing what I find painted on power boxes in the streets of Toronto.

Here’s Martha and the Muffins!
