Fascinated by Hosier’s street art, a group of youngsters check out a doorway, not noticing the artwork above the door ;o)

The ‘horse’ in the main image has not escaped recent vandalism either … his blacked-out eye used to look like this:

Capturing people being people, and the finer details of four and two wheeled blingy classic automotives – two fave ‘topics’ of imagery :-))

    I agree with John kids are way too connected to their phones to see whats around them sort of sad. Nice capture, what a colorful place.

  • Thank you Lynell :o))
    Phones are kinda useful for us photog types though – enables a sneaky candid shot or three at times ;o)

    Real life on the run, Elle. I love the “real-time” moment here, you can almost hear the conversation between the punters checking out the images.
