Discarded


I think these things might be destined for the trash heap or the recycling bin. They were lying on the ground next to the land that was being cleared to build a new shopping center that I showed in this post last week.

The death of the print newspaper...

they look like toppled over robots or lego people. :)

Sylvia K said...

Yes, I was thinking colorful Lego people!! And the death of the newspaper!! Considering what you do find in newspapers today, that might be beneficial!!! Great, colorful shot for the day. Hope all is well! Have a good day, Lois!!

Maybe they were just tired and decided to take a nap?

Birdman said...

That pretty much says it all about newspapers these days.

There are probably already too many newspaper vending boxes like that around, particularly when you add in the freebie boxes, which seem to outnumber the regular ones four to one.

I wonder if that plastic is recyclable.

Yup i don't think they'll be seeing much use any more Lois :)Wonder how long it'll take to get the shopping centre up and running!

I am a bit sad about the toll that the internet has taken on printed newspapers and printed books, but I won't miss the ever-present sidewalk box for junky advertising papers.

I'm familiar with metal ones. I need to pay more attention - maybe we DO have plastic newspaper boxes here. Whatever, it's a cool photo, Lois.

I left a comment earlier but couldn't tell if it posted. This picture really is a commentary on newspapers. It's funny how these brightly colored dispensers are lying side by side. I actually like getting news from newspapers because you can pick and choose what you want to know. Newspapers have been a dying news agency for some time now. Hopefully, they won't completely die out. We like doing the crosswords!

I getting close to doing some form of photo project on "things by the side of the road" - this may have made me start.
