Street Art   Leave a comment

Apparently Melbourne is reknown for its street art.  Kerry and I first stumbled across some on Hosier Lane on our first night in Melbourne.  We had decided to go out for a tapas meal.   Turning in to the lane with the resturant on, we were blown away by the quality, diversity and amount of street art.  The walls in the lane was literally covered in it.  It looked fantastic.  Since then we have found more.  The trick with the street art is having the camera with me when we find it.  Generally it is down little side lanes and if you try and find them again it is something of a miracle.

Graffiti tends to bring out two extreme reactions in people.  personally I love it.  In Melbourne it is strictly regulated and you have to apply to the council to create any.

I was in two minds about these images below.  I initially started to process them in colour, then tried a couple in black and white and preferred them (needless to say Kerry didn’t).

A selection of my favourite images from this blog are available to buy at stefanpalmer.photium.com
