Melbourne is known as a city of cultural diversity. One of the expressions of this is an abundance of Street Art in its various forms. Here is a very small sample, beginning with a typical central back-street scene with different expressions all over the place.
Of course this attracts people, both tourists (like me), locals and students.

I suspect that this one was a commissioned work, but none the less magnificent, especially with the reflections.
BTW, the blue and white flag in the upper right hand corner is called the Eureka Flag and was initially made and used in connection with the so-called Eureka Rebellion in Ballarat (outside of Melbourne) in 1854. I hope to return to this in a later post.
