I had a few bits and pieces to do in town. I don't recall ever being to Hosier Lane, which is supposed to have great murals painted by street artists. I took myself there via Little Collins Street. I don't think I have ever walked along this section of Little Collins Street. I turned right into Hosier Lane and it is a very open lane, leading from Little Collins to Flinders. I saw a couple of large murals I liked, but there was a lot of tagging too. I would sum the lane up as ugly. Amusingly a small work by the UK street artist Banksy was accidentally removed by council contractors a week or so ago. This outrage even made the BBC news.
Halfway along the lane is a smaller lane at right angles. Within there a group of unsavoury types were hanging around. Another couple walked past me, headed into the side lane. I am just not going to linger here. I kept my wallet, camera and phone out of sight. Down at the bottom of the lane a group of Chinese mainland tourists were getting a guided tour of the lane. I suspect they weren't going to be taken up past the side lane.
Great effort Victorian Planning Minister Justin Madden. You are responsible for the destruction of Lonsdale House, a substantial art deco building in our fair city, and goodness knows, we don't have many examples of art deco.
Pots, pans and lids and other cookware ware hanging from the roof at Fed Square. Why? Is it but art?
One of my and R's favouristist shop in Melbourne, not that we can afford to buy anything there. The coloured glass sculptures are just beautiful.
Plenty of Camerafaces here at Fed Square, including yours truly. I decided the aspect ration for the screen is wrong and I wasn't quite as fat as I looked on the screen.
