Melbourne is famous for its laneways. Some have central rows of seating under umbrellas, some are flanked by small dark cafes. Many flaunt colourful street art. In Fitzroy there is a particular cobble-stoned lane used a lot in films, usually in scenes of dark deeds. In daylight things look different.

While that was benign (it reminded me of Patricia Piccinini’s work) others looked downright scary:

I am AFRAID I’m unable to give credit to the artists!

    There are some more images, not great, but I could try an occasional post. The ones in that lane were actually quite scary, even in daylight! Melbourne is THE Australian capital for street art. Thanks for your interest John.
