18 September 2012.
The city of Subiaco is an inner western suburb of greater Perth in western Australia. As I’m visiting friends in Perth for a few days, I find myself curious about “Subi”, and that’s when bright colours catch my eye. I wander into a parking lot in front of a drive-in bottle shop. And next to the Subiaco Hotel drive-in bottle shop, a small auxiliary building is painted over with a delightful and whimsical mural by Robert Jenkins.. A time-lapse of the mural’s creation is found here. As of posting, it’s not clear whether Jenkins’ mural is still present.

During my year-long RTW, I made the photos on 18 September 2012 with the Canon 450D. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins.com as http://wp.me/p1BIdT-a16.
30 August 2012.
Street art covers the walls in Hosier Lane within Melbourne’s Central Business District. It is in fact the art of protest.
This painting does not carry social or sacred meaning nor hope for money as some primary source for justifying your pathetic needs.
Even though I appear ugly and misunderstood I’m treasurable to those that allow me to hang around.
At centre is the Australian Aboriginal Flag created by Harold Thomas and flown in July 1971 for the first time. The flag was proclaimed by the Australian Federal Government as an official Flag of Australia in 1995.
During my year-long RTW, I made this photo on 30 August 2012 with the Canon 450D, 50-prime, and the following settings: 1/15-sec, f/5, ISO800, and 50mm focal length (80mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins.com as http://wp.me/p1BIdT-a0M.
To mark the third anniversary of the artist collective Few and Far, a group of artists came together in June 2014 to collaborate on a mural in Seattle’s Lower Queen Anne (Uptown). The art shown below covers the south-facing wall of a former theater which now houses the Mud Bay pet supply store and faces a parking lot between the pet supply store and Dick’s Drive-In. Some will no doubt be munching on burgers and fries while they’re looking at furry creatures painted on the wall.

It’s amazing what gets discovered after going the wrong way.
I head straight for a full city-block before realizing my error, that I should’ve turned right about 5 minutes ago. I bow my head, and release a deep breath in frustration. I raise my head to the sky, when I catch sight of something out of the corner of my eye.
What’s that across the street?
I have to reach my destination which I know isn’t far.
But I am coming back here to get the shot.
Herakuts Wandkunst in HD-Südstadt
As part of the Metropolink urban art festival in the summer of 2016, the artist duo herakut was invited to create a wall mural in Heidelberg. As this beautiful work also highlights, their message has consistently been about challenging our preconceptions and assumptions. For more about the making, Montana Cans writes about this work here.
“Wenn wir uns von Äusserlichkeiten abschrecken lassen, verpassen wir womöglich das Wertvolle darunter.”
(If we let outer appearances scare us, we might miss out on great beauty inside.)
The United Nations has assigned March 21 as the International Day for the Elimination of all Forms of Racial Discrimination. The European Action Week Against Racism in 2017 takes place 18 to 26 March.
I previously wrote about herakut’s art on a visit to Lutherstadt Wittenberg.
