Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Anything-Painted



A painted utility box in Geelong.

Maybe a telephone junction.



Hosier Lane…


…in Melbourne.



Peeling paint.



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

Chemainus Murals…

…at Chemainus…

…on Canada’s…


…Vancouver Island.


Closer to home…

…is Melbourne’s…

…Hosier Lane.


I love the Hosier Lane street art…

…by graffiti.






Candid photos from all over.

My first visit to Melbourne to view

Street Art provided some

unexpected sights.

The subject may have been the bird

or the boarded up window.

However, for this exercise the subject is

the ladies cosmetics bag…on the window sill.

An artist whose name eludes me sneaks

in during the night and leaves his

small creations behind.

This bag appeared to be made

of solid concrete and was

firmly attached to the window sill.

In other words it was going nowhere in a hurry.

This lady’s purse is displayed in Bourke St (Melbourne),

just outside the Elizabeth Street Post Office.

It is large enough to accommodate

three or four backsides along

the far side/bottom of the purse.

The small gold mining town of Stieglitz

was prosperous during the gold mining era.

Prospectors flooded the area in search

of good fortune gold and wealth.

Today, however, few buildings remain

to remind us of the prosperity

which once was in abundance.



 Although today, however, it is a museum of sorts

housing artifacts…

…and memorabilia from a bygone era.





having lived or existed for only a short time.

The older entertaining...

…an appreciative young audience.
