Men At Work..



As always when walking down Murray Street in the city I have a peek to see how this huge project is progressing. Once the most expensive car park in the city I have no idea what will take it's place, we'll have to wait and see. I pulled back the netting to get a clearer look, happy to see that the fabulous mural by Welsh born London based artist Phlegm has so far survived. I remember watching him as he worked back in April 2015 during Public 2015, an incroyable endeavour! I understand the life of street art can be fleeting but it would be sad to see this one disappear behind a wall of steel and glass aka a skyscraper! Watch this space! Happy Friday, take care and stay safe..

  1. The space they're working in looks big enough that I expect it'll take quite awhile to get finished.

  3. Always interesting to see new buildings taking some sort of form. There must be a sign somewhere giving you all the information of what it will be and who is building it etc. I hope the mural continues to stay put. Take care, Diane

  12. Hehe, so typical - and great - of you, putting the net away for a clear shot, Grace :-)
    Oh, my, that place will be gone, too? Not that I ever intend to visit the city by car. When will the building be up and ready?

  14. With and without the netting are certainly different views. The first is rather arty!

  17. I always loved peeking into construction sites in the busy downtown where I used to live, I remember there being viewing holes in the wood fencing. At least that's what I used them for.
