Melbourne street art

I'm guessing you have realized by now that I love street art. If YOU love street art, go to Melbourne, Australia. The street art is beautiful and a big part of the urban culture. Melbourne also has terrific coffee and some of the nicest residents imaginable. I'm still pretty lagged from the trip and therefore inarticulate, but here are just a few of the photos I took while walking around the city.

Very cool! I am always on the look-out for cool street art here in Salt Lake City, Utah, but there isn't much.... well, there is a lot, but not of quality, I guess you could say. i just wanted to tell you I just finished your newbery winner and I was enthralled. Marvelous!

Wish you'd come to Japan, too. Don'(t suppose there's any hope of that.

Thanks for writing Alisha, and for the kind words. I live in NYC, where there's some great street art (scroll down for post about DUMBO), but it isn't consistently great the way it is in Melbourne. . .
