Queen St Mural


I spotted this mural of a Queen St streetcar just off Queen St West and was lucky enough to catch these 3 people checking it out too. They seem to fit right in to the scene. The artist for this mural are Allan Bender & John Nobrega for Blinc Studios who seem to have done a lot of murals in Canada and the US.
Taking part in Monday Murals. For more murals click here.

Wow! Great mural - no wonder it's getting some "lookers"! And the dog under the window is the kicker. Nice find Red.

Very nice, a modern looking tranm too.

VioletSky said...

Am I being too pedantic to point out that the streetcar has been transformed into a right-hand drive?
Never mind, it is very cool.

Cool street shot RedPat!
I like the way the 3 young people observe the mural. ;-)

What a great mural, love the monochrome couple in the background and the way it seems to stretch back in time.

Sharon said...

What a perfect shot. They look like they are waiting for the streetcar.

Hooray!

Regina K said...

Looks like a streetcar line between two buildings. Capture perfectly, looks like those three are thinking of jumping onto the car. I too like that dog.

Maybe their waiting for someone to get off.

Jack said...

Yes, it is a good painting, RedPat. The group of people looking at it made the photo more interesting.

Halcyon said...

I like this one. The onlookers do fit in nicely. :)

Oakland Daily Photo said...

The onlookers look like they are waiting to board the tram. Realistic mural merges with reality! Thank you, Pat, for continuing to participate in Monday Mural.

Woah... that looks frighteningly real, I would be jumping out of the way!

PerthDailyPhoto said...

I don't know if it's the way you've taken the shot but that definitely looks almost 3D Pat, like a trompe-l'oeil. Fantastic to have the three observers in the shot too.

Lowell said...

This is terrific. At first, for a sec, I thought it was real and these folks were waiting for a ride! Very well done!

JM said...

Now, that's a great work, the perspective is amazing! I agree with you, the people add so much to the pic.

La Principessa Errante said...

Wow - the perspective really is amazing. It took me a few moments to realize that the wall was flat and I wasn't looking down an alley. How fabulous.

NixBlog said...

What a wonderful mural! As you say the people in the photo are a great addition, Pat.

Rae Walter said...

I enlarged this image to have a closer look. That is a fabulous mural Pat. Great shot and the 3 people really do add to the scene.
