Busy morning in Northbridge

Northbridge is one of our favourite places to visit. It's a little grungy but it has the best street art and the best yum cha. S and I have been working our way through all the yum cha restaurants to find the best one which has been quite frankly tough. 
Now Jack and I know Northbridge has great bakeries and barbers too. We had a very productive morning which was so satisfying. Yum cha twice in one week? Don't mind if I do.

I think he likes his haircut (though he was more impressed with the pool table)

Street art

Hippocampus by Amok Island
One of the things that we noticed as soon as we arrived here was the incredible street art. Jack and I love finding new works and get sad if any get damaged, though remarkably most are left alone. I keep on hearing stories about Perth being dull, but seriously with stuff like this going on I find that hard to believe. I'm not sure who all the artists are but I'll try and add their details. These photos are mostly from Fremantle but also Northbridge but there are other areas with great murals too. We just haven't got there yet. FormWA, the people behind 100 Hampton Road are also behind these works and provide maps so you can do a walking tour and check them all out.
