Day 252 - Couch, sofa or chesterfield?
Today, I feel like garbage and I'm in a bad mood. I'm sure the latter is related to the former but it doesn't make for a nice combination. So what do I choose from the photo library for today's shots? You guessed it: photos of garbage. I'm sure every city and town has scenes like these scattered all over the place but I have to admit that I find Fredericton's little dumpy scenes all the more shocking because of how pretty the rest of the city usually is.
The top image comes to us from the alleys of downtown Freddie, where it looks to me like some kind of renovation is going on in this building. I mean, what other explanation can you give for leaving a lidless toilet out in the open like this? I kind of like the composition of this shot, including the fact that the toilet is facing away from the camera.
I can't say that this second picture has that much going for it, artistically, but at least it captures my mood. And gives me a chance to use all three words that I know for this type of furniture. By the way, which word do you prefer: couch, sofa, or chesterfield?
