Blue laneway

IMG_3770 Just the other week an artist  - Adrain Doyle - transformed this iconic Melbourne graffiti laneway by spray painting it 'empty-nursey blue'.  A colour he says sums up his feelings about his childhood.

It wasn't long before the taggers, graffers, and street artists were were back, painting over the 'empty-nursey blue'.

I went to see the laneway 3 days after it had been sprayed blue, to see it quickly returning back to its bright past.  When I arrived there was school students, tourists, grafters alike all there to see the laneway with a camera/phone in hand.

One of my favourite things about street art is its ability to transform a space and bring people together.  Here we all were different people, but at that moment all there to wonder and marvel over the 'empty-nursey blue' laneway.
