on all paws



Surry Hills dogs are a ridiculously pretentious reflection on their owners. They don't exactly match the seedy side but, in some ways, show the Eastern Suburbs-ness of Surry Hills.

This photo was taken at a flower shop. Flower shop + art deco dog = mad pretentiousness. The art deco dog is one of the best symbols of the contradictions in Surry Hills; it's practically part of the east, but also right on the border of Darlinghurst/Redfern/bit of a scummy newtown vibe...
