Wise Owl

Just down Dundas St from last week's mural tribute to front line workers I spotted this wise owl on the side of an old building. The laneway it was along was so narrow that I couldn't get more than a bit of the mural at a time into a shot so settled for this pic from across the road. The artist is Smoky whose work I have shown a lot. The building itself looks intriguing with its original windows and what looks like a bar with a lot of character on the main floor. Not that bars will be open here for a long time yet.

Oh he is fabulous Pat, it's so tricky when these huge murals are down narrow lanes, you got an excellent shot despite that. Love owls 💜

I love owls so of course I love this mural. I love the way the artist extended the mural up and over the chimney.

The artist's did a good job. He even took advantage of the chimney.

I really like how colorful the owl is. I was just surprised how pointed and scary the owl's beak is. Guess there are lots of owl varieties, and this one is different from ones I'm used to.

That's a very beautiful mural and a classic old building. I wonder if most bars will be able to survive the pandemic.
