July 2016



For July's posting (a few days late) here are a few photos of a walk through the Boondall Wetlands. We saw a Collared Kingfisher:







The nights have been cold, so I have taken up knitting again. Love the texture of the stitching:

Melbourne Street Art 2016



Last week I was in Melbourne, and for the third year in a row I went looking for street art. In Brighton I saw the amazing installation above, created by Redlight Studio.



Hosier Lane in Melbourne City is the laneway that is most famous for its street art, but I found it far less impressive than last year (see here, first 4 photos). The coffee was very good though!





The art in AC/DC Lane had changed completely (see here what it looked like  a year ago, photos 5-8) but I thought it looked great:









Next I went to Union Lane, which had some nice paintings:





And then to Croft Alley, where I had not been before:



And there I found some fabulous art!









When I was in Richmond I was happy to see this large mural still intact - I first spotted it in 2014 (see here, photos 6-8).



On my first day in Melbourne I spotted this mural on Francis Street from the hotel transfer bus. On my last day I went back to take some photos.



In the alley I found some more impressive work:







And on the other side of the street I discovered this:











Last but not least, here is a pic of the ground in one of the laneways:
