The back streets of Sydney graffiti

Hello again,

To my internet photographer friends I recently bought a wide angle lens - Canon EF 17-40 f4 and it hasn't left my camera since. Great for landscapes but also street-scapes! Sewing friends I even left it on the camera to take photos of myself wearing my latest creation but I will have to come to my senses and reshoot with a lens that's more appropriate ;)  Last weekend saw me out and about with some buddies photographing some great graffiti  that I hadn't seen before.

This one reminds me of the actor Paul Newman, who was one of the most handsome men ever,  in my humble opinion..

Watch out we'll bite you..

My friend was scratching this dogs back, love the look on it's face

Friends mucking about

Matching graffiti on the bins - that's class!

Say Ahhh

Bric-a-brac on King St. If you look very closely you can see a passerby in the window..

I'm watching you

Gorgeous old houses

I think this lady must have been an Aboriginal Elder

Surprised tourists. I actually took some shots for them then the garage door started opening..

Then back at my car I saw this engaged couple who were happy to pose for me.

I'm putting this into Weekend Reflections. I am going into town tonight to photograph a inner city night festival and it's a full moon. My tripod is coming with me. Have a good weekend everyone.


  1. Wow, your new wide-angle lens is giving you scope for some brilliant photos, Val. Have fun with it this weekend. x

  2. Street art can be very interesting and very engaging. And you have quite a lot high quality street art in Australia. Well done - and especially those which include other elements, too. Adds that little extra!

  3. You sound excited about your new wide angle lens. You did a good job with it on the graffiti .

  4. Wow! Guess she wasn't concerned about her dress collecting dirt from the street. :-)

  5. A nice array of murals. I especially like the portrait of the elder. The next time you shoot a mural, think about linking it to Monday Mural.

  6. A wide-angled lens has many uses, and I can see why it has not left you camera. You have done a great job with it since this kind of subject is ideal for a wide-angled lens.
