I ❤️ Health Care Workers

There are many health care workers who are WP bloggers. They are working tirelessly, to fight Coronavirus. This post is dedicated to them, and all health care workers on the front lines.

I found this on the side of a pharmacy about 2.5 years ago. I figured it must have something to do with medicine.

Recently, I bumped into the mural on Instagram. I followed the links, and it turns out it is a graffiti remix of Dali’s painting of “Madonna of Port Lligat”

It seems perfect for this tribute. My most sincere & deepest thank you’s, to all of you who take care of all of us!

Looks like modern hi-tech medicine to me.

NEXT POST DEDICATED TO FOOD CHAIN WORKERS!

Only The Lonely

This post is dedicated to Drew, The Lonely Author!

Lonely, as I like to call him, has been resting up in the Dominican Republic.  After a couple of heart attacks, he now awaits surgery.

Restless, I went for an alley walk (no problem keeping social distance in the alleys) and was rewarded with 3 fab garage doors. The moment I laid eyes on this painting, I thought of Lonely.

I have no idea what he looks like, but I know how he feels to me. Lonely is an incurable romantic, and that fact is reflected in his well written & passionate poetry. The colours in this art are like all of the colours, from the various moods, in his poems.

I don’t know what the artist meant by the bleeding purple heart, but that’s Lonely, to me. His heart leads his way. It seems like this image, was painted especially for him.

So join me in wishing Lonely a big GET WELL SOON! After all, he needs to get back to his series “Inspiring Woman Of WordPress”. He was only 2 dedications into the series, when he became ill. I am grateful to have been one of the two.

I picked this song out for you, Lonely. I hope you like it!

an imperfect flower (For All Women) is the poem Lonely dedicated to me. If you click on the pic below, you can read it. Lonely said he would be doing a health update post soon! I’m keeping my eyes open for it!

Canada Geese

I wasn’t expecting to find this.

It is so subtle you can miss it, as many passerby’s did.

I wasn’t that impressed, at first. Later, when I looked at the shots, I fell in love.

I had to take the top geese from across the street.

I crossed the street to capture the lower geese. Being so close was not the best perspective.

Yet, when I got home and saw the odd angles I deployed, I was pleased with the gaggle’s cacophony.

Kiss Me! w/Bonus

Shot from a ramp 2 stories above the mural.

This piece is in the locked outdoor courtyard of a restaurant.

I came back 3 times, as the sun’s intensity changed.

The white to the right bottom corner are the outdoor tables, covered with a tarp and featuring a filthy puddle from melted snow.

JEEP CLEANS HER FOOT

Pop Art Mural

This mural is  painted over paste-ups.

The first part was easy enough to capture, as I could step back. As it goes along the ramp, there is less and less space. It’s tighter than many alleys, and it is a high story above my head.

So, I’ll do my best to impart the feel and flow, starting left to right.

Who is that woman below?

Above you can see the paste-up disintegrating.

Dali meets Warhol!

Kizmet 32

I’ve posted similar Kizmet 32 faces before.

These ones were driving me crazy. I would always see them driving by. No way to take pics.

Then suddenly one day, I saw it parked.
