For Real Toads: Daryl and Zagar

Mural by Isaiah Zagar

Poets Forever
Daryl and Zagar
together* create
art that is colorful,
art that is great.
She with her camera
and he with his tiles
make nothing pedestrian
but pedestrian smiles.
Four thousand poets,
and Zagar, make art
“in the center of

 the real world”
and that’s just to start.
On his art goes again,
up town and down
and then all around.

Daryl’s photos,
taken with care,
make me feel 
I'm really there.

*but separately and individually

The visiting artist for the Sunday challenge at Imaginary Garden with Real Toads is New York photographer Daryl Edelstein, with her photos of some of the many pieces muralist Isaiah Zagar has created in his home city of Philadelphia, especially in South Street. His work can be seen worldwide as well.
Our challenge is to write about these two very different but equally talented artists, the man who creates murals, and the woman who sees photo opportunities and shares them with us on her popular blog.
Thanks, Daryl!
