St. Clair Gardens – pt.1

In a grubby alley is painted a gorgeous garden.

I’m working left to right through the alley.

The Artists:

Not sure how Mike Kennedy passed, but he was young. You’ve seen many of his collaborative projects on this blog. The artists did a wonderful tribute painting to his memory.I will post that in the future.


Perhaps he felt my joy taking these pics, and sent a ray of shine. It’s been very grey and dark since late December.

 

Luv Mural in Progress

This has to be very new. It’s in the alley close to home, and I walk by often.

It says Mural In Progress.

I’m thinking that Luv Sumone hasn’t had time to finish it, and the taggers can’t control themselves.

As you can see the alley is a taggers heaven.

I’ll be watching this one!

Another accidental double exposure. I will figure out how to do them intentionally, I hope!

The Silence of the Butterflies

I’m finding lots & lots of butterfly art in the alleys.

Did you know butterflies are important to pollination? The Monarch Butterfly is the second most important insect pollinator, after bees.

I will be posting a lot of butterflies in the next months. Take heed of the message!

IN ADDENDUM 

I was invited to a music session. I found it difficult to just groove, while the musicians created away.

Well, there were napkins & pens, hence this napkin art. “Helter Skelter” was raging on while I penned the above.

Strawberry Fox

I love this fox on a box!

Going around the box, end 1.

The fox is on the other side, but he hasn’t found the strawberries, yet.

End 2, of the box.

Chris Perez has taken his floral art, to street art rendering perfection.

Here are 4 different garage doors, with a close-up or 2 before the full pic.

Violeta’s Guardian

In the narrowest of alleys is a testament of love. This shot is captured using the IPhone Pano setting sideways.

Clandestinos had a baby. The baby has a Guardian, a very scary and handsome one at that.

Nonetheless, the alley is almost impossible to shoot in, with my IPhone. So, I show it in dribs and drabs, beginning with the title above.

First up is this stunning violet coloured flower. Then some sweet flower buds.

The violet below is up so high I was only able to shoot this one pic.

This is the most I could capture in 1 shot, even using the Pano setting.

At the top end of the alley is the Guardian with a golden orange flower beneath.

No matter where I stood, this is the tallest I could capture. Yet, there is more on top of the purple mountains. Then I thought, why not use Pano sideways?

That is what resulted in the opening pic. It was difficult, as I had to use an upward arcing movement, which is a foreign sensation of movement.

Many times I began, then my wrist/fingers reacted oddly. This resulted in a split exposure.  (above and below)
