Postcard from the streets of Fitzroy

Postcard from the streets of Fitzroy

If I hadn’t lived in laid-back, beachy St Kilda, I would have lived in Fitzroy. The hipster cafes, the trendy bars, the crazy amount of vintage stores…and the street art.

In the main roads, on the side streets, in the alleys: works of art with graffiti, posters, found objects are everywhere. It makes a simple walk to get a coffee like a stroll through a living museum. Soon, you start to recognize artists and taglines and color schemes: not unlike being able to point out a Picasso or a Renoir as soon as you walk in a gallery.

    Thanks! I love finding these gems tucked away where most people don’t spot them 🙂

  • Great shots Christine! Indeed looks like an interesting place to stay in!

  • It looks so hip and funky! I can understand why this was your second choice for places to live.

    If I hadn’t gotten sucked in with ocean views in St Kilda, I definitely would have loved living here 🙂

  • If it wasn’t so hard to get from Fitzroy to Uni I would be living there next year as well! (and who can resist a Bimbo Deluxe $4 pizza?!)

    Really bright and fresh photos Christine. I might have to go have a closer look when I’m back in Melbs. 🙂

  • I love this neighbourhood, and I like how deeply colourful your photos are of Fitzroy.  Guess it never rains in Melbourne, too?  😉  Thanks for your post, Christine.

    Even if you don’t live there, it’s the perfect place to spend sunny weekend brunches and nights out!

    Ha! I just don’t make it out of my apartment when it rains 🙂
