Street art in the 'hood

Cycling and walking around the neighbourhood means you get to see stuff that you might not otherwise notice as you text and drive. That includes examples of funky street art. These photos were taken on Portage Road in Otahuhu. They're just chunks of firewood someone has painted and put on the curb to liven up what is a none too posh neighbourhood. Originally they were painted rocks but the council decreed rocks to be unsuitable hence to oddly shaped blocks of wood.
Here's a rhino  

And a much scarier-looking cousin


 And an alligator

Here's the artist, Donald, and his dog. Bravo!!
