Drove up from the riverside carpark mid-morning, halfway up passed a young Aboriginal boy, early teens, stationary, astride a pushbike, looking innocent like a shepherd from Fragonard or Watteau or one of those French painters. Except.....

Spraycan in one hand, other holding a plastic bag up to & over his nose.

Chroming is supposed to be endemic, but this was the first time I'd seen it so upclose & personal. Such self-destruction frightens the shit out of me.
