    Weekly Photo Challenge - Trash Cans

    Maybe this will encourage us to get out, take a walk, and see what we can find! I've been noticing some interesting trash cans lately.

    um.. that's an oil drum? No wait, I bet it's one of those multi-tasking oil drums that end up as bins..they pop up everywhere.

    I saw this in Sydney - very Australian!



    For those unfamiliar with the term, a tosser is a "jerk". In England it's quite a rude thing to call someone and is probably considered swearing by most people.

    That's a lot of rubbish there Datura. How often does it get collected?

    Oh, this was in front of a little antique store and café, so it was a lot of stuff. We have pickup here twice a week.

    I agree.. it just looks ugly by default. I must wonder at how many harmful chemicals are put into making it look that colour. It's certainly not natural.

    well, this one is at zoo here. I went there a few weekends back & noticed this & took a photo. all trash cans in the zoo were animal shaped like these, fit right in with the place.
