a fish out of water not setting a good example to children who should remain in their own environment

redacted kiwi

i’m glad they just redacted this with a black pen rather than printing a new sign.  they’d obviously gone to all that expense in the first place.

religious graffiti

it looks like i’m flying, but i wasn’t.  this was on the pavement near where i work. 

is graffiti the disease or the cure ?

this was back at the end of May, but still an unexpected sight in the street.

two sticks are better than one

100806_850_img_1632.jpg

i like to look around as i walk.  last week i spotted these two sticks in the ground and let my eyes follow then up to the top to see why there was two

100806_850_img_1631.jpg

and there seemed to be no logical explanation as this lovely selection of signs could have been held on a single stick

100806_850_img_1633.jpg

so my only thoughts are that it’s for the benefit of dogs and this may be the first ‘his and hers’ weeing posts ?

confusing signs though, aren’t they readers ?

new things every day

100728_850_img_1346.jpg

if ever you wanted a motto for life, this could be it.  although you might just want to stick to the ‘new things every day’ bit and drop the ‘under $10 winter clearance rack’

maori fence posts

100407_850_img_9384.jpg

aren’t these the best fence posts ever ?  not only do they keep people out physically, but they freak them out too.  brilliant !

healthy cakes

100802_850_img_1588.jpg

here are some cakes we got at the office as a way of thanking us for our patience in the office move.

one of my colleague picked off the star from the top of his cake and threw it in the bin.  i pointed out it was chocolate and not marzipan so he went in to the bin and got it out to eat it. good

yawn

sky tower

100806_850_img_1626.jpg

sky tower on a foggy morning.  that sun reflection was actually a beam of light bouncing off the windows making a trail through the fog.  shame  you can’t really make it out on the picture.  you’ll just have to come and visit instead !

cockerel

quite ridiculous animals.  well done.

no dogs

100731_850_img_1368.jpg

i collect pictures of dog signs, so it’s delovely when i come across one i haven’t already found.  like patch here.  he looks like he might be half cow half dog.  or perhaps he’s a dog dressed as a cow to avoid the canine restriction.
