Yes, another graffiti shot, this time from a tiny lane off Hosier Lane, the popular spot for young tourists to visit. Here two Italian young women who are traveling across Australia are being photographed by friends and strangers alike.
I had an interesting conversation with the ragazza in white who is Italian but of German descent, somewhere above Bolzano. I think my Italian is as good as hers for both of us couldn't remember the word for sunset.
I started talking to her when the rest of her friends kept on walking and she stopped to take some photos. What caught my interest was the tiny camera in the palm of her hand- a GoPro Hero3, which according to the website is ALL THE GO with the young and active.German? I asked, pointing to her camera. Italian, she replied. In fact Californian, as I found out later.

Je comprends l'attrait , mais trop c'est comme pas assez.Les jeunes doivent beaucoup aimer, mais c'est franchement laid. Les couleurs de la jeunesse.

Very lively scene with lots going on, full of youthful energy and fun atmosphere. The graffiti make colorful setting and cheerful environment. Funny in the U.S. places with graffiti is a sign that you're a in not so good neighborhood, mostly gang related messages and territorial marking. It consider a felony in many part of U.S. to do a graffiti. A blur line between art and property damage.

Na prvi pogled mi se nije dopao ovaj detalj u prvom planu, ali ustvari je odličan. Daje utisak da je fotografisano iz potaje, krišom (verovatno i jeste), a posledica je vrlo spontana fotografija.
Odlična ti je ova kolekcija!

it looks like this colorful settings charmed not only you. The girls seem to be happy to pose for some quirky portraits and you managed to capture the scene very nicely. Good pOV and choice of vertical format works very well for this image. Great colors and composition.
Thanks for sharing

A nice combination of human activity amongst the grafitti. The diagonal sidewalk coming in from he bottom left corner adds dynamism and lead in lines and perspective. As far as grafitti goes it appears to be only tagging. Good choice of a vertical frame. Tfs!

I see Melbourne has some artsy lanes as well. What I liked in my visit to Brisbane is that they have laneway tours, you'll see different artsy alleys that are fun to photograph. I like the candid moment in here as well as the artsy and colorful vandalism everywhere. Haha
