Okay, city skyline not alley — but (I plead), but, I saw it from the corner of an alley. And I really like the swaying hydro pole, so wonderfully giddy against that severely upright crane to the south.

    • Well, I’m pretty taken with them myself! but especially, I think, that tattered first alley cat. He is a painting on canvas, one of a large number once tacked to the Craven Rd wooden fence. Over time many have disappeared, the remaining ones are disintegrating. At this point you couldn’t remove him from the fence, he’d fall to shreds — but I think he is glorious, in his final defiant moments.

  1. Such loveliness!

  2. Now THAT is graffiti I can get behind! 😉
