You never know what’s around the corner

We were sitting in Filadelfio’s pizza and pasta restaurant on 03 Feb when I decided to take a photo of the dinosaur we could see through the window – it’s on the other side of the street. As usual I was struggling with the new cellphone camera and just as I was finally ready to go, having already missed a pedestrian going by, the perfect people for my photo strolled along and at just the right moment! ๐Ÿ™‚

~you can see lots of trees in the background because that’s the location of Dunedin Botanic Gardens. The main entrance gates are over there on the other side of the intersection.


A large section of interior wall is covered in plaster and I thought some of my USA followers might be interested to see the signature left by folks from New Orleans, Louisiana…

“Hey y’all” .. ‘alligator’ greeting found on wall at Filadelfio’s, Dunedin, New Zealand.
+Mardi Gras beads +carnival mask!

  1. Great capture of the couple rounding the corner, Liz! I wonder how many folks do that, then jump when they see dino? That’s a well done artwork, really looks like he is moving.

    Hey, y’all ๐Ÿ˜

    1. The funny thing is that most people coming from that direction probably don’t realise it’s even there! If they return the same route, they’d see it on their way back lol. It’s a wee side-lane of no importance except to those who live along it. I love how they chose to put the dino in that particular spot ๐Ÿ˜€

    1. Yes! I’ve been seeing pics of the build-up to it on twitter due to following a couple of folks from New Orleans. Lots of carnival colour and energy, costumes, floats and music. Looks a lot of fun!
