Angling For An Introduction
This shot was one of a series that I took in Melbourne's most vibrant thoroughfare, Hosier Lane. The narrow laneway, off Flinders Street, is well known for its wall art and murals. It's probably only 300 metres long, but the art is stunning, bold, colourful, intricate and generally very classy.
I spent about ten minutes in the laneway on Thursday afternoon, shortly after heavy rain. A few hours earlier, I had received an email from an old friend who lives overseas, asking me if I'd ever shot images in the lane. Yes, I had, but it was high time I re-visited the place.
It began to drizzle as soon as I walked into the laneway - and this time I noticed there were about seven or eight other people there, each with cameras, walking up and down and shooting scenes along the walls and doorways.
I know you're going to ask me a simple question. You want to know the dimensions of the fish, right? I'm guessing here - but it was more than two metres high. Lucky it wasn't the one that got away.
