Weekly Photo Challenge: Up

As we go about our daily lives the tendency to look down rather than up is strong and it can prevent us from seeing some unusual and wonderful things. A friend and I spent a weekend in Melbourne, most of our time was spent chatting, shopping and eating so we never noticed the interesting sculptures sitting above the traffic lights until our last day in the city. There was one on all four traffic lights at the intersection (hence four pics instead of the usual one), you only had to look up.

    What intersection is that? I’ve never seen them, but I’d like to!

      We stayed in Bourke Street near the PO and took those photos walking back to our hotel from Myer I think, it was towards the end of 2011 so perhaps they were temporary.

    I guess pigs do fly! Cute sculptures, they look as though they blend in nicely with the cityscape.

      Thanks, they are cute and I love seeing art where you’d least expect it.
