PPAC #25 Melbourne Walk #2 Hosier Lane Murals

We had a marvelous response from all of you on last week’s PPAC #24. I want to say thank you to each of you for joining along in our challenge.  Here are the featured bloggers announced on PPAC# 25 by Cee Neuner. Their posts really grabbed our attention. They are all worthy of a second or third look (and comments!).

My Choices for This Week Melbourne Walk #2

Last week for PPAC #24, I featured the Eternal Traveller and I as we started walking and shooting down or up (I’m not sure which is right) Hosier Lane. No one got hurt during this shooting spree, so this week we are still there. It was a street of street art.

It was Christmas time, and you never knew who might be watching. So, we were good. And Santa was good to us and brought us this wonderful photo opportunity.

I think this might be a sonogram of my venous system.

This adorable Christmas Minion made us smile back at him. Can you resist that smile? Be honest.

This is the last picture for Melbourne Walk #2. I have no idea who took this picture or how. Are we looking into a mirror a glass door? Did a kindly stranger snap the shot? Were we caught on a surveillance camera? You notice that no matter how much I try to clear it up, the picture has a bit of a reflection quality. I am wearing my best hairdo for the photo. 🙂 Again, the words are a mystery!

Now It’s Your Turn

It’s not too late to join in add your photos to Cee’s PPAC #25, Artful Mailboxes. Remember when we post a theme, you don’t have to follow with that item. No one has as many mailbox pictures as Cee. I think I have one/37,000 + pictures. I would love it if someone from Melbourne posted Hosier Lane pictures because I understand they change, but no one has to post murals just because I did. 🙂

Have a great week and see you back here on Friday. Tomorrow features our new December Story Chat by Cathy Cade. So much fun!

  1. This was a visual and mental exercise. Thank you. It did look as though the photographer were shooting through two doors with middle of photo being where doors meet. How did you get ahold of the photo?

  2. It’s so lovely to see you visit Melbourne where I live. And lovely you got the chance to meander around Hosier Lane with a fellow blogger. Hosier Lane has some of the most marvelous street art in Melbourne. Sometimes when I make the trip in the city and if I’m lucky, I’ll see some artists in action painting something. You are right about the artwork in Hosier Lane changing quite a bit. Sometimes art you see there today might be painted over the next week. It’s a very popular spot among both locals and visitors alike. Hope you’ve been well, Marsha 🙂

    • Thank you so much, Mabel. I am doing well, my friend. I hope you can get out and take some current pictures of Hosier Lane this holiday season. 🙂
