Neat shots and very well exposed. All the sculptures are very interesting but I like your use of people in #1 & 3. I particularly like #1

Thanks all....I quite like the street shot, it is my most common photographic opportunity, just been too hot to walk around at lunch times the past few weeks. Melbourne has an interesting and eclectic collection of street art. #1 is a favourite, watching how people interact with it. Here is a different view.

The street art does appear to be unique. We don't have much of that in our area. If we did, it would probably be a giant catfish, shrimp, crab or crawfish.

Nice work Rafael.

Thanks Jerry. Our city council has a very active public art program. Not only do they commission some of these permanent pieces, they also encourage developers to contribute art works outside any new developments, and they have an annual laneways art project that only lasts for 6 months or so. Some view it as a waste of taxes, I see that our city is a more interesting and vibrant place. Here is some of the stuff from the last laneway project:



I loved this one, because the telephones would ring and you just wanted to climb up the wall and answer them

I feel that it does add some vibrance to daily life, and breaks the montony of routine.
