Maybe I'm putting too much faith in other people.
Maybe they think the person walking is just gaining speed to lunge at their car door and carjack them!

Who fucking knows.

NOT IN BOTANY!



Actually, the carpark outside the New World supermarket is apparently notorious for crime. It's never seemed dangerous to me!

Maybe the good folk of Otara and Manurewa sometimes feel like a change of scenery for their favourite past-times?

Yes, but to be fair, I was 50 metres away with a telephoto lens.

This B2 is unfortunately running away from the camera, which I think lessens the shot a little, but I still liked it enough to upload. It's cruising along Peel Street, having just crossed Victoria Street by the Queen Victoria Market - which I can also tell you a lot of stories about, including that the vast bulk of it occupies the site of the Old Melbourne Cemetery.

You could have thrown a paper plane at me or something.

It's a pretty common joke that they don't like to do their shopping in their own neighbourhood

B2 cruising down Peel Street by the Queen Vic Market. And look! A jaywalker cruising along the median!

Probably the only thing they like about their neighbourhood is the proliferation of booze that helps them to forget all the reasons why their neighbourhood is shit.

A tram going the other way up Peel Street. And look to its right, between it and the taxi - MORE jaywalkers! What did I say about these people being bloody everywhere?
