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.
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…
