I suspect it has been six or seven years since I last posted a photograph of the food court in the Big Pineapple. I expected that it was not long for this world then.. who knows how it has managed to survive this long. A testament to how little paint fades if it is left in the dark I suspect. Of course there's little risk of wear and tear on the fixtures, but the fact that it's still there is something of a modern miracle.
These days it costs nothing to explore nature(')s world, and if one is of a mind to do so, one can sit and watch ever so quietly as steel reverts to it's natural elements and finds its way back into the ground, where no doubt some thousands of years from now, someone will find a way of extracting it from the soil in a hitherto undiscovered process.
It does my heart glad to poke my nose in a good old fashioned rural supply shop from time to time. I think it's all the delicious smells of toxic things and new horse bridles and plastics that attracts me like flies to a thing that flies are attracted to.
Sometimes, we like to have our breakfast at this table.
It's lovely and shiny and made of aluminium painted to look just like wood if you squint a bit and look at it on a dark night. Just why it wasn't just left plain old aluminium, or painted a solid colour if one really must.. it could even have been something beach themed, "Moffat Sunrise" seems like a good name for a colour.
