Welcome to this blog, the story of a great big Australian adventure. It documents my travels, life in Australia, and a subject close to my heart – environmental conservation. 

Art in the streets: the sequel

A few weeks ago, I went on a walk with friends through the city centre to look at various bits of street art. This alerted me to a phenomenon I must have walked past loads of times but had never noticed until that day – decorated Traffic Signal Boxes (TSBs).

I won't go so far as to say they became a bit of an obsession, but I did go out of my way for a while in order to find more. Now I just snap them when I see them. And I have seen them in New Farm, Bulimba, Hawthorne, Norman Park, Mt Gravatt, Fortitude Valley, Spring Hill and Milton, as well as the CBD. But my collection so far is just a drop in the ocean: there are hundreds throughout Brisbane. Here are a few of my favourites.
