The gods smiled upon me today -- I was able to get to Parrs Cross Road in Oratia, looking for the apple-crate power box I've been trying to photograph for ages. First up, though, along the walk from the bus stop: looks like the control box for lights to one of the Oratia Stream walkways off Parrs Cross.
The waves seem to me to have a Japanese tsunami art flavour to them.
Then -- I found the goal of the journey: the apple-crate box.
Even at the back, the wooden crate effect is maintained.
According to Auckland West, the artist is Robin Binsley.
