The Vibrancy of The Sublime

There is little to say. One of my favourite images of 2011, and it’s only 2 days into March. Old Mandurah Road. K town aka Kwinarnia. Another masterpiece by Pete “swamp fever” F.

    Now that, Point Percy , is how it’s done.

    I want to ride to the ridge where the west commences
    And gaze at the moon till I lose loose my senses

    Those who would trade their knee room for security deserve neither.

    The Choc milk carton… I wonder if it was being supped by a person sitting on the bench when the fencers came along? Oh the humanity.

    Very Zen. The bus will never come.

    Empty benches seem to be a common, perhaps even clichéd, cue for poetic reverie, to cite just two examples. Nicely observed photos here in any case.

    The bench behind a wire fence makes it look like a prison. Perhaps it’s meant to look that way…


  7. Russell Woolf's Lovechild says:

    Is the fence meant to keep people in or out of Kwinana? There are strong arguments for doing both.

    Discarded Choc Milk carton for extra ooshta


  9. Pete says:

    Ah, I thought this had slipped in to the morass of TWoP submissions that is your inbox TLA. One day I’d like to jump the fence & sit there, watching the world go by, mumbling ‘nothing to be done’ occasionally.

    It’s a subtle allusion to Stephen King’s Under the Dome.


  11. Bag O'Turnips says:

    Maybe this is a novel way of keeping Kwinana louts off of public transport, being the choc milk swigging bogans they are…would’ve been just as telling had their been either a large energy drink can or beer stubbie left lain on that same spot.


    • Bag O'Turnips says:

      Oops…”there”, not “their” [whacks head suitably with wet fish for this uncharacteristic oversight].


    • E.V. says:

      There’s a competition on the choc milk/ iced coffee cartons right now to win.. you guessed it – a V8 commodore ute. MAN UP your driveway, the boganesque caption reads. That will keep some bogan off public transport for a while, until he smashes it or has it it confiscated for hooning.

    Look at how overgrown that grass is i’d call it a swamp and everyone be sure try to the new Chill Drink its Choc Mint a mix between Choc and Speremint chill and tell me if it was nice and would i like it.

    A timeless classic.

    Everywhere will look like this after Mayan 2012.

    Wired. Met Pete F. and missus in person via a chance encounter at Bird last nigh (hope you don’t me sayin’ Pete). Love-erly fellow. Established common interests after the pseudo-masonic exchange of code words such as “wired,” “bench,” and “TL101,” among others.
