Toowoomba Street Art

The Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #42: Creativity
Debbie from Travel with intent One Word Sunday: Memory

In January, I travelled to Toowoomba to see my daughter. One thing we enjoy is walking around the city discovering places and things. One day I said I wanted to walk the streets and lane ways to discover the street art. A memory of being in Toowoomba and seeing some of the local creativity on show.

I hope you enjoy a bit of a walk around looking at Street Art.

Memory

Debbie’s One Word Sunday: Memory

I was wondering if I should try and find a memory from my archives. I went back to April 2017 and found the most popular post for that month in 2017.

Have a look at Morning to see my memory. Do you remember seeing this post?
