Hosier Lane Tuesday Streetart – 8


This is in Hosier Lane in Melbourne. I didn’t even notice the person looking at me until now that I am posting it. Sorry for invading your space.

A work by El Rolo, one of the few artists brave enough to keep painting through all the Melbourne covid19 lockdowns! This is one of his newer work.

    Teresa, how could you not see him? It makes such an evocative photo. Hope he’s ok.

    1. Teresa says:

      Well, I was so engrossed with finding street art that I didn’t quite notice how he was staring straight at me haha.

      That’s the sad thing, even though Australia is a first world country there are a lot of homelessness here. I hope he is ok too.

    The person actually makes the shot – great as the art is (and I really like it), having human interest too really enhances it although I’m sure he’d rather not have to be there. But how you didn’t notice him baffles me!

      Well I don’t know really. But I was focusing on the clarity of the mural…. Silly me.

      But you know what, maybe if I had noticed him there I wouldn’t have taken the photo…as I have said before I am not like you taking good candid shots.

        Well this is a very good candid shot 😀
