Post your Misplaced Trolley/Shopping Cart photos

Have you ever noticed an abandoned Trolley/Shopping Cart? They sometimes seem so out of place as to need to be documented. Other times they seem perfectly happy to be where they should never have been in the first place. Raf (@OccasionalyFocused) has posted a number of these shots over the years... and they have a certain quality to them I really admire. Recently I was inspired to do a shot in homage of Raf's work in this area. Now I'm opening this up for all of you to contribute to show he and I aren't the only one's who see the world this way:

I actually had to look twice to realize this wasnít just ironic commentary on the bright red one. Lol. That blue one is well hidden indeed.

I'll contribute, though strictly speaking this one is not "misplaced" but part of an art exhibition. Suspended from the ceiling and tied to the wall. Wierd!

I think itís perfectly fine. The idea is a series of pictures of carts in odd settings really.

Ermahgerd what have you done? Now Iím going to subject potentially a whole new audience to the madness of my trolleys xP

Starting with this poor specimen:


Legless by -Occasionally Focused-

As I said at the time ďThis rather sad-looking, and obviously disabled trolley was sitting alone, abandoned, and ignored, outside Penrith Plaza. Everyone walked past, with not even a look being spared, let alone an offer of help; it's easier to ignore the plight of others than to face inconvenience - and being confronted with the inevitable casualties of the system that gives us our unrealistically-priced fancy consumer goods.Ē

Itís just not an urban shopping trolley photo without a bit of anthropomorphising, and ideally, social comment.

Hellís bells thatís one of the best Iíve seen!

sometimes, if you're lucky, you'll find a docile one so you can get a shot from the belly of the beast:

Super-cool. I have tried that since seeing yours - not with success.

I love the light and shade in the third one
