Melbourne Street Action & Art

...the winter city sleeps on a Sunday morning, perfect for toggies to wander quietly through. Let's go find some Melbourne street Action & Art (graffiti) in Melbourne CBD. Hosier Lane is supposed the front runner, and I'm sure others would know lots of hidden laneways and areas where it would be great to get some shots.

A true photo wander - let's meet then fracture off to wander the laneways. A good practice for the street photographer in you. Here's a little video that might spark some ideas that I created earlier in the year:

How to do street photography if you're shy like me

Please post suggested route ideas with a place for convening at the end?...

RSVPing

You have all been super awesome and courteous at keeping your rsvp up to date and you get a gold star for always being on time - thank you, it makes organising so much easier.

    Somebody painted the lane off Hosier lane and it was blue. Blue walls, blue bins, blue pavement, totally BLUE with not a scrap of graffiti. By the time I left around 7pm the artists were at it and it was undergoing considerable change. Once in a lifetime experience I think. I'll stick some images up.

    It pays to go back to a scene and as Beth says look for the unexpected - well today it was totally unexpected :-)

    Hi Beth, not sure if I'll make it on time. Got appointment in morning, if it finishes early could I call you and catch up somewhere? If I can't, have a good time.

    Guys I'm having a bit of a meltdown here I just can't put the time to figuring out a route along with the other stuff I have on at the moment.

    When we convene at Hosier Lane I would like to have a conversation with you about the general route. My thinking is to head north up Flinders Lane, across to Chinatown on Little Bourke, then back down to Degraves area via Bourke/Collins in-between alleys.

    1 · August 23, 2013

    • Igor Y.

      Beth, sounds like very good route to me. Lots of interesting places to see and photograph. May I suggest something? Whatever route we decide upon, if people are get lost or wonder off, they would still know our end destination (Degraves Lane) if they want to join us for coffee or lunch. Cheers and see you on Sunday.

      August 23, 2013

  • effie

    Sounds like a great meet- not sure if I can make it on time. Can I join in during the walk?

    August 24, 2013

  • maria p.

    Put me down for a yes at the moment maybe its just what I need a bit of SHOOTING! will update later if it changes. tks M

    2 · August 23, 2013

  • Beth J.

    As usual, please buddy up with a few people around you, or you can photo-wander alone if you prefer.

    If you are late, please follow the suggested route above and catch up to us, you won't miss us with all the cameras.

    If you can all please familiarise yourselves with Google maps following that general route suggestion that would be very helpful to the running of this event.

    With photography we tend to get split off but we'll end up at degraves/centre lane area at the end for coffees/lunch as you like, no set time or venue, just as you like for your Sunday afternoon photo wander.

    See you Sunday!

  • Leigh W.

    To bad this is on a Sunday i have two friends from Queensland who enjoy photography here that weekend and was going to take them into the city to do this on Saturday as they fly out Sunday afternoon.

    August 11, 2013

    • Janelle S.

      Could be a rather cool last activity in Melbourne. All depends on what time the flight is... That way could do something else on Saturday

      August 19, 2013

  • Thachna M.

    Just a suggestion these are some spots which might be of interest to you guys .. for a route suggestion … start Hosier Lane, Centre Pl, Acdc Lane, Union Ln, Stevenson Ln, Croft Alley, Lt Latrobe St (behind RMIT Media and communications Building). These are all within walking distance of each other :) hope it helps...

    1 · August 15, 2013

    • Beth J.

      Thanks Thachna that's really helpful. There was someone in a previous event in the CBD that very cleverly laid out the proposed walking route in a map. Can anyone here help me with this please? thank you and much appreciated for your help to organise this big group

      August 18, 2013

  • Bob P.

    See you all there, hope the weather is fine.

    August 17, 2013

  • Fahad M.
