AUSTRALIAN ART
These are artwork that I saw during a couple of tours of Australia. First was a free & easy tour of Sydney, and second was a multi-mode cycling tour of Perth and it's surrounding region.
Due to photography angle, and for presentation purposes, many of photos have been cropped and edited to compensate for low lighting. It is better to go there and see these artworks for yourself. Enjoy!
