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.

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…

 

…some of which is surrounded…

 

 

…by graffiti.

Melbourne trams…

…run on light rail

Suburban Railway Station in an

older part of Melbourne.

 

 

Country rail taking goods to…

…regional areas of Victoria.

FriendlyFriday-Art-Unexpected

~~~~~

 

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.
