Ch3mic4l Fact0ry, one Gr4ing3rs Rd. West F00tscray. This ones pretty hard to get into and seems to be getting ready for demolition, but who knows how long it will take them to demolish it. It's not a very large site compared to other ch3mic4l fact0ries out there. But there's lots of industrial equipment and largeish ch3mic4l storage silos. There's also a small double storey office block with: office, lunch, and toilet facilities on the bottom level, and lab space on the top floor.

If you're a good climber (which I'm not) you could also jump over the fence into a foundry which adjoins the ch3m fact0ry. It's a 6 or 7 metre drop down some racking and it's the foundry at two6zero Geel0ng Rd. West F00tscray (which appears to be vacant) and runs all the way back to meet up with the ch3m fact0ry.
House, three Hertf0rd St. Fitzr0y. Also known as the "s4nd house". It's a bit hard to get into but the house was filled with s4nd as part of an art installation. There's really not much to see as it's only a small house. Here's a link to an article (click here) if you want to read more.

Sorry folks, I've got nothing for you this month.
I've been slack. Hopefully I'll have something for you next month.

Been having a bit of fun painting lately. Here's a new piece and my new stencil. It's been a while since I've done a street stencil, so let the crusade begin.
Wareh0use, corner of 0ak0ver Rd. and Newm4n St. Prest0n. This was used as a small "Savers" sec0nd hand cl0thing store. There's really not that much in there. There's three medium size rooms. 2 rooms were used for clothing on racks and one for storage / sorting. Adjoining those rooms is the usual toilets / lunch room / broom closet, etc.
Another awesome piece of "Chinglish".
This was on the back of some juggling balls.
They reckon "This product to be highly praised and appreciable by consuming public"
And I wish I had those "ustrations" to follow when I was learning to juggle - makes it soooo much easier.
