great photos. i love graffiti. it has grown into a relevant part of art. we had a great book at work about graffiti. it concentrated on the humour of graffiti, you know, make love not war, rather than the art aspect. adelaide street art have a fb profile and a web site. some of it is amazing. those little lanes in melbourne are amazing too. they hold a certain amount of danger and the unknown. we found one in chinatown which was so freaky. i love it.
Thanks Yevisha, I will check out the adelaide stuff :-) I recall when i was younger this kind of movement which defaced billboards and the slogans on them.. subverting the messages into socio-poltical ones. It was exciting and thought provoking. This occurred especially with billboards promoting cigarettes and smoking.Your comments re' the danger held in the lanes is spot on. I grew up in the inner city and where Collingwood and Fitzroy have a gentrified aspect to them now and are not as dangerous as they used to be, Shit still happens ;-) I still see drug deals and violence occuring both in the main and back streets.

Love street art, graffiti, and murals. I have been collecting photos of different street art from all the places i travel too, it is a great part of the cultural experience of going to a new place! Awesome photos.
Thanks Maple Girl! Look forward to seeing your pics :-)
