Random photos out In The Wild with Feral Beast

The hedge behind Victoria's Parliament House.
Keeping the riff raff inside the boundaries away from the public.

An example of developers retaining a facade - taking notes, Jussy?

I suspect a politician or church elder was immortalised on St Pat's Cathedral in the most unflattering caricature as a water spout (hinting that the person spouted too much in real life, perhaps?).

Slit drain at Oakleigh Station that is forever channelling one of the many natural springs in the area.

Isn't the style fab?
Don't get too excited this is what's around the corner...
Yes, it's a dunny...
Proving that even the most utilitarian building block could be wrought with a little class and flair.


I used to know what this was but major brain fartage knocked it out and left a smoking pile of ashes in its place....I think it's called Old Age but I defer to Ricky Ponting on that subject.

Church...fountain...something, something...Ohhhh, Hokey-Pokey, and that's what it's all about.

Fitzroy Gardens conservatory.
Thrilling pic, eh?

Yes, you can go back to sleep now, more tomorrow.


  1. Waiting for more. I do so appreciate your walks with camera in hand. It's also nice to see greenery on a -12C dreary day.

  2. That Gargoyle looks like David Walliams out of Little Britain in an all male sauna.

  3. Yes, this inquisitive Aucklander would like to know what that dressed-stone tower is, please. Ta very much in advance.

  4. Your blog keeps getting better and better! Your older articles are not as good as newer ones you have a lot more creativity and originality now keep it up!

  5. Thank you, Elizabeth, I'll try to hit the Botanic Gardens next ;)

    Brian, I can clearly hear that gargoyle exclaiming "I'm a lay-deeeee you know!"

    Finally got the brain in gear this morning, Lisa, posted its history ;)

    Thanks, Anonymous.
