photos: wild things and purple blocks

Max!
Purple Rectangles
I realised I had a bunch of photos on my flickr that I never ended up sharing here. These photos are from earlier on in the year. A rainy day spent antiquing (although I didn't buy anything so I guess it just counts as window shopping) and hanging out in a part of town that I don't usually hang out in. I love me some Where The Wild Things Are so I definitely had to snap a pic of the Max street art. It's on the wall of a cafe, apparently. But it was closed when I was there and I didn't catch the name of it. The purple thing is actually an exhaust for a major tunnel. They are quite polarising and opinion-dividing. Some people like them while others think they are ugly. I like the purple one but don't like the matching red one. I guess that puts me in neutral territory.

  1. Love these and somehow they go perfectly together, similar tones and space. I hope you continue to post more photos. :)

  4. Like the pics! I know exactly where you were! The cafe is called brown dog cafe. On Saturday mornings it's usually pretty packed and people eat breakky on their laps because they don't have tables! I love the area there - kind of one of my favourite weekend haunts :)

  25. I love the Max art very much. The drawings in that book are wonderful.
    Not sure about the big purple thing; I can imagine it being a bit of an eye-sore if you had to see it everyday.
