Late last week a friend and I were walking to the Kensington area to take some pictures. We almost didn’t get there because we were distracted by a number of small alleys along the way. This is a small sample of what we saw that day.

A mural of the Great Wall of China has been painted on the side of a building.  There is a hydro pole in front of it with a sign that says no dumping.

The words, Never lose your dinosaur, are written in large yellow letters on the side of a red brick house.

Black wall with a robot and heart sticker.  Someone has written the words, what's real?  what's not?on the wall as well

robot love – is it real?

I guess one could make jokes about pole dancing robots.

Concrete block wall with the words blue, blue, blue written on it.  The sky behind is very blue.

Blue, very blue

A wall and door have been painted a maroon colour.  Someone has written the words Hi Buddy on the door.  There is a light fixture over the door but it is broken.
