Albion Cricket Ground , Musselburgh, Dunedin
Why do doctors call it 'bloods' - we only have one blood don't we? Many veins and arteries, sure, but just the one river of blood coursing through them? Am I right or am I right? (as Michael Gambon in 'The Singing Detective' would say).
Anyway, my doctor suggested I 'get my bloods done' the other day, so today I toddled off to do that.
On the way back home I took a couple of snaps. This is the Methodist Church on Queens Drive, St Kilda.
What an eysore!
Muselburgh's water treatment station - where they used to take Dunedin's temperature for the day, a particularly breezy spot so needless to say it was generally not indicative of the true temperature.
I remember in the early-90's, my sons playing here while I sat reading under the ngaio trees, set off as they were then by a smooth and nicely-kept space of green. The trees were a real feature. Now they are knee-deep in black plastic; swamped by peculiar black plastic-wrapped packages piled into a ugly heaps. Come on guys! Not cool.
I hope 'they' - whoever 'they' are - do whatever 'they' are going to do with the black plastic soon, so that the ngaio trees can once more feature as they deserve to.
