These shoes appear to have been left behind.
I have been told it is a sign,
to those in the know,
that illicit substances
may be procured nearby.
First glance it appears that someone has left a purse behind..
Second glance reveals that it is solid concrete
and the artist has done a wonderful job.
I happened to spot this harpist
setting up in Brugge.
What appeared to be tourists
were being lead her way.
Five minutes later not a sign of her.
Must be the shortest practice/busking
I know I posted this image last week,
however, looking at again I could not help
but wonder if this bloke could practice
his pick up technique a bit more?
Even Lucerne’s famous Chapel Bridge,
which crosses the Reuss River is an ideal place
to hone one’s skills and perhaps glean
a few tourist dollars/euros in the process.
A Bourke Street, Melbourne, busker
What a way to practice one’s
Twister skills and…
…pay a bill or two at the same time.
I love this image.
The very young appreciating
the older generation’s skills.
Something not seen or heard very often
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…
by the camera lens…
up to the opposite end.
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?
The ladies handbag is solid concrete
and not a left behind piece of
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.
A few years ago…
…the Camera Club to which I belong…
…decided on a field trip to explore and photograph…
…of which there are many.
was also on our list of places to visit.
A painted utility box in Geelong.
Maybe a telephone junction.
In April 1975 I enjoyed a camping holiday
through Central Australia.
In Alice Springs we visited
Henk Guth’s (now deceased) art studio
where I purchased this painting
of Ormiston Gorge
for the princely sum of $150.
I have seen/photographed
a few murals in Australia…
…but none as good as the
Closer to home…
I love the Hosier Lane street art…
…some of which is surrounded…
Candid photos from all over.
