Photographing the Chippendales

This week I've been at a conference at the University of Sydney. My hotel was in Chippendale - a formerly down-at-heel industrial suburb adjoining the CBD, but now rapidly transforming - so I managed to snap a few ghost signs on the way there and back. As I've written  previously (http://findingtheradiobook.blogspot.com.au/2012/09/sydney-ghost-signs.html), Sydney seems to lack Melbourne's concentration of ghost signs, so it was good to uncover a few, mainly hidden away in the back streets:
