Wandering around Melbourne’s Hosier Lane

one can easily get lost admiring

some of the larger works of art on display.

There is everything from colourful graffiti, to…


…more traditional forms of art.


This piece, a marriage proposal,

is my favourite from

my 2019 visit.

No matter where you stand to view this piece…



…viewers are always followed

by the camera lens…

…the camera has followed me right

up to the opposite end.

Very clever.



So, while these can attract one’s eye

it is easy to miss other

not so noticeable gems.

In photography we often talk

of frames within frames.

However, I call this image art within art.

Did you notice?

I didn’t!


The ladies handbag is solid concrete

and not a left behind piece of

someone’s wardrobe.


The smallish colourful pile

of plasticine like material.

It’s just right of the upper, left window sill.

A closer look.


My final discovery was these stencils

also high on the walls.

I was told that these stencils are painted

when no-one else is around.

Not sure if that is fact or fiction.

  1. Woolly, I’m always delighted to see you photos. These are great shots for my STREET ART challenge. These artists can do some amazing things and it’s a treat to find those hidden surprises. Thanks joining in.


    • You’re welcome SandyL. Not being an artist myself I envy those who can draw the perfect circle. My art skills are limited to caricature drawings where I can overlook accurate details. For example I turned fruit and vegetables into wicked looking superheroes for for a Prep/1/2 class. They loved the activity. A bona fide artist would have cringed..I’m sure. 🙂 So, even it is pure graffiti, there is still a huge amount of skill involved….
