AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

Melbourne Lamp Post Art

Artistic lamp post and shadows in Melbourne

Wondrous skill of art
It can evolve anywhere
And at any time

I love the decorations on your lamp posts in Melbourne - the designs here are very elegant. I know some have been done here in downtown NY, but what exists in my neighborhood look somewhat the worse for wear. I will check them out again!

Lovely lampost - art on every street corner...and the couple across the road look pretty sculptural too!

Ralph said...

We think of light posts as being fit for the night only, not considering that these offer a style during the day too. Art works well to add a nicer look to utilitarian and usual things too - nice!

Art is everywhere we turn. Some of it is prettier to look at than other works. This is beautiful!

I'm going to share this with my artist friend. ;-)

What a beautiful touch of color and art to what is usually just another drab street staple.
Nice capture.

That lamp post is so interesting!

Love the street art of a city. It can be found everywhere if we look. Can't help but wonder how many walk by this every day and never give it no mind, (double negative on purpose). Then, the shadows play around it to frame it. Very cool shot!


Yoshi said...

Wow, it's very colorful and exotic lamp!

NatureFootstep said...

I want one of these!

Summer for you - winter for me.

An incredibly colorful lamp standard. Reminds me of Victorian majolica.

Where on earth did you find that lamppost? I must see that with my own eyes next time I visit Melbourne... Great find!
