On our epic Scavenging day last weekend, Kiana, Hylas and I wandered down High Street in the Auckland CBD, which brought us to Freyberg Square. And this fountain was burbling my name! With a motto like this? I really needed to be photographed with it. Or, once Hylas challenged me, in it. The square was utterly deserted as I took off my socks and shoes, and I was quite confident that it would be no problem to snap some shots.
(There are click-throughs on everything.)
Of course, it’s the middle of winter here. That water was fucking freezing! Even though it was a gorgeous day, I was still wearing a cardigan, and only taken it off for photos. So cold feet really wasn’t a metaphor…
And of course, once I got those feet in the fountain, the square was suddenly utterly swarmed with people! I froclicked a bit for pictures, and then eventually I just sat and waited. Lord Freyberg didn’t seem to mind the company, which was nice. Which was kind of the point of having an entire square for it, I guess.
Eventually the pedestrians decided to be walking elsewhere, and we got our photos. Take that, Auckland central! Have some more of my tits! (Hmm. I wonder just how many closed circuit cameras caught that?) What better way to spend a Saturday afternoon, hey?
Still five more Scavenger sites to show you! Thanks to Hylas for photographing and Kiana for assisting with them all
