In the lanes of Lismore

The word prompt from Leanne: Street Art

What a fabulous topic. I am sure there will be lots of posts showcasing Street Art from around the world. I love Street Art which is so different from graffiti. So much talent.

On the weekend, we took to the back lanes of Lismore, a city on the north coast of New South Wales, to get from here to there. I wished I had grabbed my camera from the car so it is phone camera shots for this post. I have a few photos from times past and intend spending a Sunday in the lanes when there won’t be delivery van and vehicles parked obscuring the full potential of some of the best of Australia’s Street Art.

Here is a few snippets for your enjoyment

Places People Visit

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge : Places People Visit

I am going to be very home town for places people visit. At this time of year, my town of Grafton is awash with purple. The Jacaranda trees are starting to come into flower and the town is gearing up for the annual Jacaranda Festival.

The Jacaranda Festival is the longest running floral festival in Australia. People come from all over the world to Grafton to visit and wander the town, look at the gardens and marvel at the purple everywhere.

The trees look a treat

There is even a few White Jacaranda trees around town

The streets look a treat. When the blossoms drop the ground is a carpet of purple.

Even the birds like to nest in the Jacaranda trees

When going for a walk, we often come across things on the side of the road. It is a great excuse to do a bit of “street art”.
