It could only happen in Newtown, Sydney's arty district.

Newtown is home and the hub to many musicians and people who display their art in many forms; whether it be in their personal dress, partner preferences, eclectic shops and wares.

Even their local movie theatre shows art house movies.

Their form of protest to the local council was to nail shoes to a telegraph pole. I could not resist taking this photo as I was driving through yesterday. Asking many passers by and local stores, no one could tell me the reason for the protest, I guess locals just accept art forms in many ways, no matter how unusual are just the way of life in Newtown.

Contrary to what outsiders say about this eclectic suburb, I have found it safe with fascinating people watching, a multitude of great restaurants and interesting wares.

You will see this interesting art form on the southern end of King Street on the let hand side heading toward the city.

Unsure how long it will last, like the suburb, things are always changing.
