Street Art

Hi V ... Tourists and locals alike are often impressed by Melbourne's
lanes.  Attempts have been made to replicate them in some of the
new constructions such as the QV building but the age, charm of the
old lanes cannot be built, they must evolve.  Many of the older alleys
are burgeoning with street art such as that depicted above.
Cheers J.

  4. Love the subtle, pyramidal segment of the portrait - almost cubist! The effect is a sense of layer and dimension! And in another sense - pop art with class!

  8. Agree with you about the sterility of the "constructed lanes" of the QV, Joe. The building equivalent of plastic...
    Nice shot!

  9. She seems to be coming out of the wall, in which (haha) she seems to live. I can imagine walking by and not seeing her at first. Good capture. Thanks for participating again in this week's Monday Mural
