No longer of Use

A vacant block is breeding ground to all things unwanted and abandoned.

The fait of the old, worn out and broken and no longer wanted is delivered on empty building blocks. This could be any town anywhere. Find an empty block and you will discovered the abandoned. Generally the abandoned has served his master well, but we live in a disposable society where it is cheaper and more convenient to buy new than fix the old. A correct burial for the unwanted costs and so, in the dead of night they are dumped and forgotten about. Becoming someone else’s problem to dispose of correctly.
This old wheel burrow’s only friend is a brown car seat.

  1. Beautiful photo! I love it when communities come together and take over those empty lots and turn them into gardens and parks for everyone to enjoy and be a part of. Maybe someone will do that for this one.

  7. Beautiful shot is right and so so common in a city to see the dumpings of these old items. It is sad
