STREET ART – FOOTSCRAY

Further to my previous post about the Heavenly Queen Temple…..

Just around the corner of the main road near my bus stop (to go home), I was surprised to see a massive wall mural.

img_9837While the sun was in my eyes and I was standing hard against a chain wire construction fence on the other side of the road, so couldn’t get the whole mural into the frame with a 17-50mm lens, the image below give you a sense of its size.

Once again, I couldn’t get it all into the frame (and the building windows reflected the construction site and an old weatherboard cottage next to where I was standing).

This morning I received a big thrill to be notified of a Commendation in the Black & White category of the 2016 Australian Photographer of the Year.

It was only by chance that I entered and I had terrible trouble trying to decided exactly what images to enter (apart from the one below which has always been a favourite of mine and was an obvious choice).
