24 July 2012
No, not some mysterious monarch of refuse - rather, an apparently disused shed on Broken Hill Road in Kenepuru, Porirua, on a dank and rainy day. Stately pukekos picked through the roadside grass nearby as the clouds opened and soaked the earth. The writing refers to the Spicer Landfill at the end of the road, which is overlooked by the Colonial Knob reserve. I like both the important qualification ('Open all week - Not Sunday!') and the slightly obscured demand at the bottom: 'No crap'. Or perhaps it was meant to be a selling point.
