Shopping Cart Series: Beautiful Blue In A Sea Of Green

This stray shopping cart titled “A Long Way From Home” was caught by photographer Lisanne Anderson and posted on Flickr on May 22, 2009.

The beautiful blue plastic cart found cowering under the shade of a tree must have been mistreated by its family — the Family Dollar Store, that is. Imagine the life of this poor shopping cart, banged around, filled to the rim with cheap imports — only to be emptied and tossed aside without so much as a thank-you.

From another perspective, it looks like a blue cruise ship sailing on a sea of green, but then reality sets in and like the Backyard Woods Explorer said, “If this one sits here long enough, the weeds will grow through it.” Looks like Beautiful Blue would be happier living in the weeds than in an unhappy home.
