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…

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.

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.

A-Photo-a-Week-Challenge-Smudge

~~~~~

Smudge is/was a very timid rescue cat when

we purchased him a few days prior to Christmas 2018.

Still is afraid of the new things in life.

 

During the winter Smudge and Taji

have become good friends

and gradually Smudge has been

following Taji over near our house.

This (Sunday) morning Smudge

came to within 5 or 6 metres

of the verandah and posed

while I captured this photo.

It still doesn’t take much to get him bounding

back to his home, however, he is getting better.

Perhaps he should be called

Big, Brave Puss

instead of Smudge.  🙂
