Weekend Wanderings – Collingwood Part 1
Today’s wanderings has to be quick. My trip to the Mallee is so busy this time. I’m off soon for some more photos, this time around Lake Albacutya. I haven’t been around there since January and the fires, so it will be good to see how much it has regenerated. I have some photos for you today that I took last weekend. A friend invited me out to go and take photos and she suggested we go into Collingwood. My first thought was that there was nothing really there to photograph, I was so wrong. I want to go back because I know there is a lot more there. For today, I have picked out some photos of the street art and an unusual home to show you.
You have to look around here and you see some wonderful things in unusual places. The above is becoming more popular, the image is on paper and then stuck to the wall.
I want to do a proper post on Collingwood, but at this point in time, there is no time, so when I get back home I want to show you more and explain more about the area, but for today I thought I would show you some new homes. The one on the left was old silos and they have been converted into flats. Apparently inside them all the room are round, how would you go furnishing a place like that?
One of the things the building owners have found is if they pay for a graffiti artist to do the walls then the walls are less likely to be tagged, or have random stuff all over them, so there is some fantastic street art around there, you just have to look for it.
This is a short post, I’m sorry, but I need to get ready to start my own wandering today. I got some fantastic images at the Pink Lakes yesterday, and am hoping to get some more great images today. We got some stars last night, but unfortunately not many as the clouds rolled in.
I hope you have some wanderings planned this weekend, and here are the above images and more from the streets of Collingwood.
