Today was a very productive day for my blog. I took a trip over to Marie Curtis Park and found subjects for three posts today. I’m always on the hunt for public art and murals. I hit the jackpot today.
When the subway train comes out of the tunnel and travels above ground for a ways there are always interesting murals on the back of buildings that are only visible when you’re on the train or if you’re parked in a lot next to one of these buildings.
I love murals and street art. Sometimes we see things so often, almost daily, and we take it for granted. In my neighbourhood there are lots of murals that have been commissioned over the years that I had completely forgotten about when thinking of this challenge. Here are just a few of the murals that are close together in my neck of the woods.
This last one is my favourite. It almost feels like there is an actual Mountie up on a ladder painting the last bit of red on the wall. Notice his horse waiting for him on the other side of the bus shelter.
