Lanewalking #2: Eton Lane

Given how grey, stormy and wet it is in Sydney right now, it's nice to look back on these photos I took a few weeks ago. Look at those blue skies! The complete absence of clouds! The fact that it isn't pissing rain for days on end!

Eton Lane

Eton Lane is just a few blocks from my house, a little unremarkable lane that I set for myself as a phtotographic challenge. Much of the lane itself was sort of ho-hum, so I decided to focus on the details. Surprisingly, there were more interesting details that I initially thought.


This is the back fence of my local corner shop, and I like the creative recycling use of the old signage. MILK BA.


Some wangfitti. If there's one thing my neighbourhood loves, it's penis. Loves it!


My local council has judged your rubbish bin and frankly, found it wanting. If you put non-recyclables in your recycling bin, or in the green waste bin, then you have to do the Reject Label Walk Of Shame.


Home made security, not much of a deterrant but I guess it's something.

Great pics!

If you look carefully at Eton Lane's sign, the letters look like they're cut out, allowing the sky to show through!

BTW, my blog disaster has been averted! Thanks so much for your support in my most panicky hour!
