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.

 

Burn The Bra

 Hope you will take a moment to read my guest post on “When Women Inspire”. Hey, that’s my bra you see burning!

Today I welcome Resa McConaghy with a guest post on the history of “burn the bra.” Is it a feminist legend? Or a feminist myth instead? In her well-written post, Resa includes discussions of Gloria Steinem’s A Bunny’s Tale, the 1968 Miss America Pageant, the Freedom Trash Can, and more. Oh and that burning bra in the photo above? Resa set it afire to mark the end to her research. Take it away, Resa.

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!
