Graffiti and Class

I had a meeting with our landlord today regarding the ongoing cockroach issue in our apartment. The outcome of that meeting warrants its own post, but on my way to her office I walked down Hosier Lane, situated on the east end of the CBD. I've mentioned a few laneways, for which Melbourne is famous, in previous posts. Hosier Lane is known for its graffiti artwork.
I guess the majority of the graffiti art is commission by the city, but obviously random amateurs have contributed as well. I've never seen anything like this laneway before; it's pretty amazing. I felt like I was on the scene a hardcore rock music video or something.

Now for a complete juxtaposition, the Chanel store on Collins Street, which is where the landlord's office is located. 
Hosier Lane and Collins Street are actually perpendicular to one another, though they seem worlds apart. This is one of the many reasons we love living in Melbourne. There are so many different neighborhoods and vibes within the city there really is something for everyone. No wonder Melbourne was just voted the "Most Livable City in the World" for the fourth year in a row! Life ain't half bad Down Under.
