Red, White & Blue Girl

Here’s an odd bit I found on the side of a building.

The front & side of the building quietly announce coffee and dressmaking.

I’m unsure of what this image has to do with either, if any at all. I like it a lot!

Hallowe’en – 18

NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART: This post is filled with ghouls, gators, gorillas, giant insects & garbage.

Yes, yum, devour humans!

You guys are lightweights! I eat garbage.

Not as much as we do!

Allow me to chop all that garbage up for you!

Did someone mention garbage?

Don’t look at me! I’m full. I just finished mating, and well, he was a tasty fellow!

I’ll burn your garbage, you stupid alley dregs.

I vote we kick Flame Head out of the alley! He burnt my eye last year, and now I have to wear an air conditioner for an eye patch.

What a bunch of idiots. I need to find a new alley!

Dedicated to my dear niece Sherrie. As before and always, she’s the Hallowe’en Queen.

Artists include: Bruno Smoky, Nick Sweetman, Wales, Birdo and 2 unknown

That was horrific. I need a smoke!

Hallowe’en, phooey! I will take you all on! This alley needs straightening out!

I managed to take the entire mural from across the street. I left the photo file large, so if you click on, it blows up beautifully.

Go-Go Getso & Birdo!

Birdo & Getso painted this board fence wrapping a high-rise construction site.

Artists: Birdo & Getso

It wraps 2 sides. I started at the west end where a Birdo horse lives in a lime green circle.

Artists: Birdo & Getso

There are 3 abstracts, all in colorful circles, following to the east..

Judging from its condition, the barrier seems to have been there awhile. It feels like a piece or 2 were missing.

A Big Beautiful Bouquet

I send these flowers out to Carolee Croft.

Artist: Chris Perez

She has done me the honor of reviewing “Nine Black Lives”, which I wrote several years ago.

Artist: Chris Perez

She called it “glamorous” & we all know how I love glamour. I find it everywhere, even in alleys.

Artist: Chris Perez

I went wild and used up the rest of my camera’s battery when I saw these.

Artist: Chris Perez

Chris Perez has covered 2 sides of what I would call a very large shack. He’s turned a vicious eyesore, into a thing of beauty with his abstract floral painting.

Reggae, the King’s Music

I went to a unique area of the city to get this fab Reggae mural.

Artist: Adrian Hayles

When I found it, it was in a parking lot filled with cars. Yay, reflections!

I only knew basic history of Haile Selassie. However, if you are interested, as I was  you can read the BBC article: Rastafrian Beliefs Regarding Haile Selassie

Artist: Adrian Hayles

Moving on, it looks like Bob Marley leading into Haile Selassie …
