kim faires photography + stuff
Wherein I post one or more photos I’ve taken, and write about ‘em. And that’s it. No biggie. Just a pixel-fix on my part. Each and every Friday.
And so it goes.
So soon after I took it upon myself to champion the wonders of the back alleys of my neighbourhood, our city council does the unthinkable.
They switch to the automated black cart garbage collection system.
Which means, of course, that each and every household in Calgary will now receive a big black plastic cart (same size and shape as the blue recycling carts), in which to place their garbage.
Which, (all efficiency, money-savings, tidiness, safety issues, and monotony, aside) basically means this:
The impending demise of my beloved, humble, bashed-up, scratched-up, bent, and old, metal garbage cans.
And so today’s Pixel Fix Friday! is dedicated to the once ubiquitous metal garbage can.
Oh trash can! Ask not for whom the bell tolls, it tolls for thee, my friend, it tolls for thee!
And now, a partial poem from a favourite childhood book:
With a nip and a nibble
a drip and a dribble
A dollop, a walloping bite:
If you want to see grins
All the way to my shins
Then give me some Garbage Delight.
(I know, I know. Try not to think about it.)
And have a happy day anyway.
