Melbourne’s Painted Streets.

LucyLucy, Box Hill
LucyLucy is a French artist who has made Melbourne her home.
Her works always suggest a story or a relationship.
This wall in a Box Hill laneway is a celebration of sisterhood with a Japanese city.
Her exclusively female characters are always beautiful but she adds to their charm by draping them in delightfully patterned fabrics or twining them with flowing ribbons.
Lucy is a member of the AWOL street art collective.

This tawny frogmouth chick fell out of its nest just a few days short of being able to fly, but thankfully the Northern Rivers Wildlife Carers have been advising on care.

Uncle Bob welcomed us into his home to chat.
With a towering backdrop of Uluru Bob played us some of his songs including Brown Skin Baby They Take Him Away with accompaniment by Jennifer Cooley on the harmonica.
This was a deeply spiritual and emotional visit one that will never leave me.
