Street art from Melbourne

One cannot talk enough about Melbourne’s street art culture. It is vibrant, it is energetic and it is everywhere! Don’t be surprised if you stumble upon a gorgeous geisha staring you down, find a wall of multicolored squiggles when you turn the corner, walk alongside fantastical six-legged beasts or meet a monochrome gang of six-year-olds practicing graceful ballet moves. Although I’ve lost many photographs from my year-long stay in Melbourne, thanks to a broken hard drive 😥 I remember those long walks around town discovering a new scene almost every day and clicking away photos to my heart’s content. My favorite spots were Degraves Street & Hosier Lane in Melbourne, as well as the funky Fitzroy & Brunswick neighborhoods on the edge of town. I could spend hours looking at these beautiful expressions of art.

Street art in Reykjavik

img_9710

A few weeks ago, I went on an awe-inspiring road-trip through Iceland with Mr.A and two of our closest friends in Stockholm. Although it will take me a while to recount all those breath-taking views and experiences we shared along the way, let me start with Reykjavik, our port of entry & exit. Like I do on all my trips, I tried to capture the spirit of the city through its vibrant street art. At least a few years ago, the authorities in Reykjavik were not very supportive of this form of art. Not sure where they stand now, but I was happy to find a lot of color along Laugavegur, Reykjavik’s hep main street, leading up to the beautiful harbor area of Gamla Höfn. Take a look 🙂
