Reid’s shopping trolley graveyard

By 23 December, 2013

Just down the hill from the War Memorial is a little depot, and behind that is, it seems, where the lost shopping trolleys are corralled.
A lot more Coles than Wooleys it seems.

By 8 December, 2013

This just in to us via Twitter.
ArtsACT need to try harder on vandal-proofing.
Or just electrify after hours.
Saddened to see Keld Moseholm's "On the staircase" is missing a man again. Disgusting vandalism. cc @The_RiotACT http://t.co/1wOeN2TQkm

The little buggers might get braver but they don’t get any smarter

Woden town centre at midday today. The saturated green of the trees. The acres of concrete since the pool was filled in.The metal sculpture that probably symbolises something profound although it’s not my thing.The vermin defacing it that didn’t think that someone might be taking a happy snap of their doings in broad daylight.
I’m [...]
