Sydney August-September 2014 (5 photos)
Sha la la, dooby wah, dum dum dum, yeh yeh, um
Oh blue angel, don’t you cry
Just because he said goodbye
Oh, ahh ahh ahh
No don’t cry
Oh blue angel, have no fear
I’ll brush away lonely teardrops
Hey hey, whoa whoa
Blue angel, a song written by Joe Melson and Roy Orbison (1960). Sung by Roy Orbison.
“In Between Two Worlds” by artist Jason Wing is a permanent street art installation in a small service lane in the Chinatown district of Sydney. Incorporating wind, water, fire and earth, the artwork references both Chinese and Aboriginal motifs. In Chinese and Aboriginal culture the elements are said to have their own spirits. In the Chinese Zodiac humans are also created with characteristics of the elements.
I’d always wanted to see what this looked like at nighttime. Situated at the rear of several chinese restaurants, there was actually quite a fair amount of activity going on in the lane.
Oh blue angel, don’t you cry, just because he said goodbye…
