Hosier Lane, on  the southern end of Melbourne's CBD, is famous for it's street art and graffiti. The graffiti covered walls have become a back drop for fashion and wedding photography as well as being a tourist attraction. The lane is also featured in state sponsored tourism campaigns and other publications. Everything along the lane, including the bins which are shown in one of the images below, is covered in Graffiti. The street art on the walls along Hosier lane is legal. More images inside.

While I was photographing the lane, several groups of tourists and school children were being guided through. A number of other photographers were also wondering along the lane capturing images of whatever caught their eye. Below is a selection of images which I managed to capture over the two hours I spent in the area.
