'The Conversation'.....


Sorry I haven't been around much the last couple of days, renovations going on..all fini and looking good, back to normal today! As I've been pretty much housebound, here are a series of images I took last week in the city. Looking up Howard Lane is a work commissioned by City of Perth in the 'laneway enhancement' project as a way to reactivate underutilized spaces. This piece looking up the lane (had a bit of fun playing with this one) by Welsh born artist Stormie Mills is called 'The Conversation'. The last shot titled 'The Swing Overlooking the Field' made me smile as the swing is perched over a 'no authorized parking' sign and the 'field' is a parking lot, seemed appropriate that he was behind bars! Hope that you've had a good start to the week, I'm finding it hard to come to grips with the fact it's Wednesday already, total madness!! Take care  and stay safe.....

  1. Well seen and well done. I like the composition and the "strange" art.
    They look a bit sad.

  3. These are amazing captures! Though I agree with Gunn the expressions are somewhat melancholy:) Hope you've been having a productive time (though it cannot possibly be Wednesday)!

  7. I'm glad it's still Tuesday, lol! Love the black and white that makes the red pop out and although they look sad/grumpy, (dunno which applies best) I really like them!

  13. WOW - I like these... A LOT!!

    Melbourne has a Lane like this, that encourages people to actually tag/make graffeti (name escapes me), and I wished that Sydney would as well!!

    Just back from Hong Kong, so my WW is up as well at AussiePomm - Hong Kong Sunrise!!!!

    Have a great day!!

  15. Great set of images, the first one is outstanding, love the design and the explosion of red in B&W!

  16. Very cool, Grace. The brilliant red against the dull gray walls really grabs a viewer, doesn't it?

  17. The red just makes my heart sing! What a cool display in an out-of-the way place.

    Bises,

  18. Beautiful graffiti, I think its some of the best I've seen. I sympathise with the renos, part of my ceiling fell in on the weekend.

  19. Sounds like a lane must be like what we call an alley in the US. I like the concept. We could use some of it here.

  20. I like the colour isolation in the top shot Grace. It is wonderful that new life is breathed into spaces which may otherwise be abandoned.

  21. I love those...
    A great "meeting"...

  22. Bonjour chérie!It's so nice to start my day here with delicious coffee and your beautiful pictures, by the way I like a lot this mural, a creative art with cute fellows, that look a little bit upset or they are depressing, worried about something. That red could be the economic moment in the world.
    *If it was in Europe I would be sure about this idea! LOL

  23. All I can say that is a strange-looking bird; some kind of mutant. Cute, tho. Aren't you glad it's Wednesday?

    Gotta run, the golf course calls!

  24. Love the top shot. They are interesting pieces of street art. It is good to hear that the lane ways are going to be spruced up. Like in Melbourne .

  25. Bonjour,
    I really like this series and the composition of your photos. The third one is very graphic and is a great photo. Thanks for making me discover Perth.

  26. I love the characters in these murals.

  27. This is the kind of public art I could see the City of Sarasota commissioning in exactly the same area. Great way to spruce up a dead, unattractive area. Glad things have settled down for you.

  29. I am curious to find out what blog platform you happen to be working
    with? I'm having some minor security problems with my latest

    blog and I'd like to find something more secure. Do you have any solutions?
