Decorated

My friends, this week I went out to Northbridge and Mount Lawley, around about a 30 minute drive from my house, There I saw things like a 10 on 1 fight at the clubs and a man running from side to side in a dark alley. But, thankfully, I also saw some really cool looking buildings that had been decorated with a few coats of spray paint.


Below is what I think is a pretty cool alley behind a row of restaurant's and bar's which I have to say, If I was a homeless man or had been out all night and needed a place to stay, I would totally hit up this alley and one of it's fine dumpsters.


At the end of the alley I found what looked to be a face oozing out cheese on a electrical switch box's door. Although this kind of style doesn't involve paint, only paper and glue, It's really effective and last's a long time if it doesn't get wet.



Cheese Man?


Moving on into Mount Lawley I was hit by the renown Pacific Hotel, which I will defiantly be hitting up some time soon. But instead, I walked through more alleys and was a little surprised to find that there wasn't to much to see at all.

I did find some pretty awesome looking characters on the back of a local bar along the main strip. It is a similar style to that I photographed last week in Joondalup, however these guys had a slightly darker feel to them.
  
I wish the car had parked elsewhere.
                                                     
A little over decorated, but fuck, I like it.

I have a small sneak peak though, of what is over the wall of the infamous Abandoned Pacific Hotel. There was a small pole next to the wall which I managed to just quickly climb and take a look, before continuing on.

I must admit, I'm looking forward to going back and checking the place out, head to toe, and I'll tell you now, from the amount of art I saw from where I was.. There is going to be a lot of picture's in the blog following my visit. 

But for now, you can take a peak at the 'teaser' pictures of the Pacific Hotel.




Flash, I know, Ewww Icky, But it was the only way to light up back there.



Some of the picture's I also took this week are now part of my header image and background, as I figured it was about time I changed my blog layout a little bit :)

If you like my work guys, please be sure to vote for me HERE  muchly appreciated, stay cool.

Till next time, my friends.
