The council’s fixing up the paths around Hamilton North. A couple of weeks ago they sent around crews with grinders to to take off the trip hazards where tree roots had pushed one slab up against one another, then this week they put down fresh slabs.

After the crews knocked off for the weekend they stored all their amber hazard lamps in a big pile next to the surveyor’s office, on the corner of Chatham and Boreas roads. It made a bizarre impromptu sculpture, especially as the lights were still blinking in random sequence. It looked like a futuristic robot graveyard.

I was worried that their batteries would flatten before I could get to them for a night shot (with a proper camera, not my phone) but they were still there, desperately plugging away, slowly dying … dying …
