I knew Allen Ginsberg walks was a tough act to follow after I published it; it’s simply an awesome combination of street art and eclectic poetry. What I do have for this Street Walk post are picture polar opposites of the hustle and bustle of Sydney streets versus some more sedate streets in Sydney and Sydney’s Inner West.
Let’s check them out.
Pitt Street Mall, Rush Hour
Pitt Street Mall Sydney, midday rush hour and the buskers and artists are out. I managed to snap 2 of them out there while walking around lunch time.
Side Street Solitude
I swung by my favourite coffee place at Bond Street Sydney and went through this little alley way I’ve always admired. The temptation of taking some pictures was overwhelming – the old bricks of varying shades, the P&C logo from another time (nope, it’s not my logo), the old rustic lamp – I just had take the iPhone out and take the below. These snaps were long overdue:
Jet Fighter, Alice Street Newtown
This street is relatively quiet (except for weekends) but the wall art sure is noisy! This Jet Fighter appears in Alice Street corner Walnore Avenue, Newtown and can be viewed here in Google Maps.
I was about to head off when I saw this curious Circus-like gate at the end of Walnore Avenue (corner on Alice Lane). It’s a good supplement to Jet Fighter and gives this street real character.
Ladies and Gentlemen, I would like to present: SPRING
And just before I leave, I’d like to share a Spring snap to celebrate our current season down here.
It’s not usually in my character to take pictures like this, but these guys caught my eye the other day and thought that they deserved a close-up and a share.
It will be hard to top these shots but I am sure I’ll find some more interesting subjects about town.
About Street Walks
Street Walks is a series of posts capturing the colourful streets of Sydney. I will develop this series to include other areas around Sydney, and possibly touch on other subjects.
