cabaret

this chap was spraying water on the cabaret advert as i walked by but by the time i’d whipped my camera out he’d reaimed his yet. 

there was something interesting about him cooling down the risque actors on the poster with the ‘max’ ladies looking on from across the street.

this chap was zooming along the pavement veering in every direction whilst he talked on the phone.  not sure whether that counts as illegal or not.   was fun to watch though

this chap whizzes around auckland town picking up litter on his official litter moped.  he’s got a grabby stick and is able to spot and retrieve rubbish without getting off his bike.  he’s even able to drop it in to the bucket directly behind him where he can’t even see where it’s going.  genius stuff.

hooray it’s henry

abandoned henry the vacuum cleaner in a london street.  good to see these things haven’t been totally destroyed by the insatiable demand for vortexes in a cleaner

and pigs might fly

i don’t think this cleaning vehicle was part of the art (that rhymes) but it was jolly good none-the-less-the-same

this lady was dragging her vacuum cleaner down the street by its nozzle.  unfortunately as i swung round to photo her she stopped to pick it up.  funkypancake seems to be all about apologising at the moment.  sorry about that.
