Free Spirit , a parrot and words that mean something to me. Being in my car allows me to be free , allows me to explore gorgeous paintings by our local Street artist like this one. This was a winner in my eyes as it summed me up.
My love and interest in street art has come a long way from capturing the streets of Nambor and caloundra, to now exploring old run down buildings covered in graffiti. The images I have here are from a couple of places close to home, Seq, Ipswich.
Built in 1920, what is known to be Red Hill Skate Rink to urban explorers and the local community of Red Hill started as “Pops Popular Pictures.”
In 1969, the building was then transformed into a local sound lounge popular amongst teenagers before it became a Skate Rink a year later.
Due to Arson and a fiery blaze in year 2002 the building was left to stand alone.
Its now 2019 and new renovations have started inside the building creating a cinema, a ten million dollar job.
