Public art encompasses any form of art you see in a public place, large or small, statues, murals, graffiti, gardens, parks, etc. The art should be visible from streets, sidewalks, or outdoor public places. Let your imagination and photographic eye show us diverse samples all over the world.
Last week for PPAC #23, I had a marvelous response from all of you. I want to say thank you to each of you for joining along in our challenge. Here are the featured bloggers for this week. Their posts really grabbed my attention. They are all worthy of a second or third look.

My Choices for PPAC #24
Almost six years ago the Eternal Traveller and I wandered the streets of Melbourne in search of photo opportunities. Armed with our trusty PAPER city maps, we found Hosier Lane.
“Located on the (Melbourne’s Central Business District) CBD’s southern edge, it extends between Flinders Street and Flinders Lane, and opens opposite the Atrium at Federation Square. Since the late 1990s, Hosier Lane has become a popular tourist attraction due to its street art.“Wikipedia
Here is the first set of murals we found that day. I will do a series on these because there are quite a few. The murals are not nursery rhyme characters and are sometimes legible and explainable only to the street artists who created them.
I’m not sure if he’s still there. But you can be sure that neither the Eternal Traveller nor I messed with him there in that dark alley.
You can see that his tricks didn’t work. I’m not sure what happened to Green Eye’s teeth. I think he got carried away with the whitener strips.
You might want to plan a wedding on Hosier Lane and invite these guys to join you – or not. This is or has been, a popular spot for taking wedding pictures.
