scratch graffiti

sometimes signs can make more of a statement if you remove parts of them

loose dogs in a van

only in new zealand could you have untethered dogs balancing on the back of an open backed van driving through an industrial estate.

strange hair

one of the great things about estate agent boards outside houses for sales is the pictures of the real estate agents.  this lady has particularly good hair which i think she might have converted in to a phone.  or perhaps she’s holding a grab to her face ?

skin off chicken

someone obviously decided that skin off chicken was no longer needed on a sign so they painted it

water for dogs

my colleague simon sent me this.  he said there was no water.  or dogs.

cockroaches and mosquitoes

two things i really don’t like.  and spiders.  really fast running spiders which bite (in a non dangerous way).  don’t like them. at all.

this photo is from my trip to sydney last year.  it’s not a long drain pipe from new zealand, although i wouldn’t put it past them.

robo toilets

one of our new hobbies is going round ‘open houses’ at the weekend to look at our neighbours house and not buy them.  it’s great when you find a house with a robo-toilet like this one.
