Music Practitioners…

…on the

Chappel Bridge



…finally, a









a drug or other substance that affects
mood or behaviour and is consumed
for non-medical purposes,
especially one sold illegally.

I don’t know if this is true,

but I was told that this,

sneakers on  a power line,

is a sign that illegal narcotics

can be procured here.






Shadows of Christmas decorations in

Bourke Street,


Kalahari Scrub Robin,




The tree casting this shadow has been removed…

…and the Church is now surrounded

by a used car lot.

Shadow Selfie.


Weekly Prompt Photo Challenge:…Shadows




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.


Cee’s Black & White Challenge:...Lost-Left-Behind







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.
