Do You Even Think About What You See in the Trash?

Due to Penn Avenue closure, I ended up in a Bloomfield Alley and caught this trash scene with the iPhone as I waited to get out into the main road.

Do you think people get tired of looking at what’s on their wall?

  3. Not often, Ruth. We did once in the early days of our marriage, throw away an old, very dark and depressing oil painting passed on to us by hubby’s aunt. I sometimes think about it, and wonder if it may have been really valuable. Too late now, I guess. 🙂

  4. Quick – go back & pick up that piece of art. It has character 🙂

  5. I do think about what I see in trash, Ruth. In fact, the best “trash viewing” is during the first 2 weeks of the year, once the Christmas decorations get tossed instead of put away. It’s not that I enjoy seeing the decorations thrown away but there is something chuckle-worthy seeing Santa peaking out from under a garbage can lid, as if in hiding. 🙂

  6. That’s a really interesting pic! (And print.) I have given away art, but I can’t bear to just throw it away.
