Abandoned and Alone

My first foray into the world of JPG Magazine. The theme is Entropy.

Check it out (and vote) here: www.jpgmag.com/photos/76396

This shopping trolley was found next to the Brisbane River, under the Expressway. It's obviously spent some time in the river but now stands alone and abandoned in a disused carpark.

    Good for you! Congrats on making your first foray. Edit to add: there's a JPG flickr group. People often post their submissions in the applicable theme thread too.

    Thanks Melissa :) I should have realised there'd be a flickr group!

    Hmmm, now that's a creative use of a shopping trolley RH... I think though, that it'd need a wee bit of modification to be successful.

    not wrong there Dave, it maybe ok for those giant crabs up north but down here?? the bull sharks get them first.

    I suppose you could tow it behind a boat and dredge for crabs with it Kev ;-)

    Urban decay... speaks volumes about time and place.
    Pedro was right when he said you could spot the Flickrites by us being the ones looking at the garbage in the gutter ;)

    hehehe Yep!

    Okay, so I voted for your overused shopping trolley...do I get a free doughnut? (o^^o)
  • David de Groot said:
    Yes Margot! It'll be available for pickup in Brisbane Qld ;-)

    Thanks :)

    LOL @ rainforest_harley.
    Good shot, isn't there a reward for returning abondoned shopping trolleys? Maybe the rusty ones only get half the reward lol. :-)

    There is ??? Hmmm, I wonder how much... I could do with another lens ;-)
