The morning after…

…particularly on the weekends.

One of the tasks of living in the ‘Hood is checking the perimeter each morning for debris left by revelers and night people. The big stuff goes in the garbage.  Broken beer bottles are harder to deal with so I just sweep  them into little piles for the street sweeper.

Latest sweep street photos (pun intended) are below.  Note the tidy nature of the person as reflected in the knot at the base of the condom 🙂  By the way, I wish the night people would drink Lagunitas IPA.  Their bottles don’t break as easily as Corona bottles. Much easier to deal with… 🙂

Detritus…The Stuff We Leave Behind…

The debris…or fallout…from our daily lives surrounds us.  It mostly goes unnoticed, unless and until it gets so high that it has to be scooped up.  But it can also provide some interesting images…and questions as to how it came to be.

For example, a discarded sock in the street somewhere on Petaluma’s East Side …

What happened to the other sock?

Now consider this scene on the sidewalk at 4th & B in Downtown Petaluma…

Hmmm….? Perhaps it is best to leave it to the reader to suggest an interpretation.

Consider next a discarded glove that color coordinates with the walkway…


Quite stylish indeed!

My personal favorite is this Coke Bottle Rack (Bench in Petaluma’s Center Park)

Perhaps the owner parked it there while looking for this pizza slice…

However, that was not the case as a crow grabbed the pizza.
