photoblog image Mersey.

Mersey.

Can't imagine this being taken by joyriders and it looked in good nick as well but here it is keeping the shopping trolleys company just down by the centre of Stockport. Actually since  I snapped this is probably been washed down to Liverpool.

I have to say I'm much like Kay in as much I'll look at the shot or thumb nail first before I read the comments. For me there is no need of a comment as we all see images like this evey day. Nice one !

David Johnson: Cheers again,not really trying to put forward any social comment but just intrigued at times with the story thats behind things.
Jetsam of society. Shopping trolleys - series upon series could be done on shopping trolleys. This is different, this says much more about our culture these days than shopping trolleys.

Beautifully pp'd.
David Johnson: I havn't posted one of the fold up wheelchair, it was just too odd,even for me,I can understand the shopping trolley/ traffic cone thing as I was once young and foolish but sometimes I see things where there is no sense...of anything.
This is very sad I think. Useless object.. hope they did not do the same with the kids ! smile
David Johnson: Looked like it was almost new, can only think it was kids who stole it and dumped it,what other reason could there be?
I think it is a very sad picture as well. Nice shot, well composed, great tones, but sad.
David Johnson: It can only have been children,surely!Probably stolen,bit of fun maybe but not a great weather vane on inner city society.
This is an excellent photo and one that I find incredibly sad - speaks volumes. Into the likeys. Mike
David Johnson: Into the likeys, my lord, better than being in explore on flickr. Wasn't going to post this because as you and others have said, sad!

My first reaction was I hope the kids were not in it when it went over! A sad indictment of our society!
David Johnson: Its tough around here, tough people, harsh housing and I look at things like this and its not like tagging and graphitti where people are making a mark, its just so very sad and pointless.
It's odd David because a few weeks ago I parked up outside my childminders house to collect my little girl and there was a pram sat there, empty on the street. Apparently, someone had just left it there and it was in quite good condition too however, during the course of the evening someone helped themself to it!
David Johnson: Where my eldest live in Glasgow they have 'recycling' days, usually end of term, where students leave white goods, furniture, w.h.y,on the street and its"recycled"Its all very civilised, this though is just sad, I hope it was only kids having a lark,otherwise it dosn't bear thinking about.

Probably reached Garston and was then fished out to be re-used. Some strange thinks appear in the Mersey.
Instant sense of loss & alienation created here: let's hope the nippers who sat in this buggy grow up to be Labour MP's or somebody equally valuable...smile
