Recliners in the rain. Spotted on Ella Street in Bloomfield. You know these discards catch my eye.
Too bad they couldn’t be salvaged and used by someone else. And then the rain comes and soaks then through.
I got excited when I saw this combination on an adjacent street the other day. Drove around the block to capture this image. Toilets in unexpected places can be a surprise.
First posted almost 8 years ago. Mark is now 42.
The kids all grown up and gone now, I’m still going through stuff in my house. Trying to clean it all out.
These animals with their faces, ugh.
Do you find it easy to throw things out?
Purchased in 1977 in New York City at Creative Playthings. Rubbery farm animals. Nice to clutch and carry around when you’re almost two. I bought them for baby Mark who’s 34 now. Maybe the paint is unsafe for the grandchildren, plus they have a hole in their stomach so whatever dirt and mold in the basement the past 20 years is living inside them. I put them in the contractor bag to drag to the curb and I swear the cow’s eyes looked at me.
I took them out.
Their faces have the loveliest expressions.
Clintonville. On Calumet. In Columbus.
That’s a lot of Cs.
I saw this Christmas Tree and the couch waiting for pick up. Some people put their trees out right after Christmas.
Maybe the trees have up since Thanksgiving and the needles are dropping like crazy.

I’m fascinated by trash. Litter, too. Funny thing is, I find it difficult to throw things away. Here are previously featured found garbage photos. I even did a Garbology post. “the study of a community or culture by analyzing its waste.”
Here’s a sample of my photos of cat trees, toilets, chairs, aquarium, couches, champagne bottles, old televisions.
We were going to use it
Waiting for garbage day pick-up.
Do you know someone who purchased exercise equipment and regretted it later?
Or joined a gym and after an initial effort, quit going BUT failed to resign so paid a monthly fee for years? Hmmmmmmm
Two hour delay for school this morning. Teachers to report on time or as close to it as they can, safely. I was making it!
I drove by “the find”. but when I got to the top of the intersection by school, I turned around on the snowy hill and went back and captured what I saw in the trash.
Snow on a discarded cat tree started my day.
The snow on the cat tree shapes caught my eye.
Across the street( from my second turn around) I saw these windshield wipers standing at attention.
Then on the way home from school, I thought I’d see how my favorite tree in the nearby park was looking with the snow on the branches. Looks identical to my other photos of this particular tree in the park when it snows but I felt happy it was there.
I like it when a color photograph looks black and white
The snowman was a bonus and I even got out of my car and trudged through about 6 inches to find him with sunglsses, branches for arms and a carrot nose. As my friend V, who had been shoveling earlier, said “The snow is perfect to make a snowman.”
How the light changes throughout the day. When I got home, The Mary statue I rescued from someone’s trash a few years ago had a halo of fresh snow. She was painted by the puppeteer, Laura O.
