There’s a camera …

… a camera displaying colors across the building.

At the far end of the building we find ET.

Another colorful array exists in the opposite corner …

… as well as beautiful designs behind the camera

A patch serves as a hint of the one behind the colors ….

… his face looming large in black and white … but he was a quiet man with a large place in history

The man is an astronaut in a colorful spacesuit …

… holding the camera as he stands on the moon.

Thanks to Resa (Toronto’s leading lady) whose posts about street art in Toronto and Winnipeg, got me interested in outdoor art in my area. I invite readers to visit Resa’s blog (and tell her I sent you).
