  1. I think it’s quite beautiful. Almost Art. Definitely not worst.

    Not worst.

    That is a thing of beauty.

    And the solar hot water system I think I can spy is a nice touch.


  3. Snuff says:

    Now that is a registered lawn. Magnificent, WAtching.

    p.s. Ohisashiburi, Grrr.

    Lovely shot WAtching.


  5. Shreiking Wombat says:

    Very Wintonesque, non?

    Solar powered dreams
    Constructed of found objects
    Will yield to sand dunes.


  7. WAtching says:

    It’s amazing to think there are things like this in our suburbs. This place is right next to the Freeway in Gwellup.

    Hard to imagine it ever contained Flowers.

    Not Worst.

    Exquisite, WAtching. Worst in its decay, but with sufficient pathos, so Not Worst in strictest sense.

    This shot could’ve been used as an <a href=""ABC Colour ident slide from the 70s (for those who weren’t old enough to remember, the way to fill gaps in programming were station clocks, test pattern and slides with music).

    quite lovely waaa-kching.


  10. Been looking at too may photo sites lately and decided to go sans commentary today. Maybe a wordless worst week called for.

      Is this some new permutation of your epithetical laziness, TLA?

      I could swear I bought flowers at this place a number of times, certainly within the last ten years and perhaps within the last five.


  11. G'day from WA says:

    Just beautiful.

    I think I’m going to cry.


  12. Onanist says:

    That is a very evocative picture in itself, beautifully framed.
    But even more so because it is the old “Tony’s For Flowers” at the end of my road. The old boy sold home grown flowers and vegetables for decades.
    He has now passed and the structure must remain as (I was told) it is listed.


  13. rolly says:

    Oh! So reminiscent of simpler times, when what you were and did was more important than what you look like and the poses you assume.
    I love it . Just love it. Not worst at all.


  14. He’s passed on, but his water remains hot. Humanity.


  15. Bill O'Slatter says:

    Flowers , the traditional family home of Sir Binkie Huckerstepp, This neo colonial mansionette can be yours for a reasonable price. Three beds and a hot water system suits the do it yourselfer. Air con all year round.May be on the heritage list but a quick fire will get yer around that. Get in and be the first : the West Australian real estate industry never lets you down.


  16. Thomo says:

    I remember cycling past this place as a kid, it had a sign out the front that said “fresh ones inside” which never failed to amuse my immature sense of humour..


  17. One the one hand I am pleased that a post with no commentary is popular since it means less work, but on the other hand it is a savage indictement of my previous I thought well crafted hepcat phrasing.


  18. Jaidyn-Jaxxon says:

    This isn’t worst because it still exists. Framed on tea-toned paper, it’s worst; definitely worst in glazed ceramic or worster yet, it could be represented in oils the colour and consistency of possum shit (in a brazen, laconic interplay of broad strokes and careless, painterly markings). But as it stands today, not worst. So the question is, in fifty years, will your library-archived jpg be worst or not?
