The Abandoned Couch Project


I was driving on a route that I drive a few times a week, so it was a surprise to see this couch sitting on the side of the road underneath a bridge!  It was only a few weeks ago that I photographed a red couch put out for the trash in a residential neighborhood.  I love that this couch is olive in color because it makes for a monochromatic color scheme.  After I photographed the couch, I thought that maybe I need to start a series called "The Abandoned Couch Project."  Only in jest, of course.  I haven't seen any abandoned couches before this in my ten years of the blog.

I love this photo. The diagonal sloping curb at the bottom, and angular bridge beams at the top work so well with the mostly blank center. Great composition.

John: Thanks so much for your kind words! I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this, and the perfect colors!

Seems like a nice gesture that someone let this for anyone needing to get some rest and to get out of the rain. The couch was left under a bridge - makes sense. Oh, the stories we can come up with after you post a photo. Wish we knew the real one...betsey

I love the questions that placing a couch under a bridge asks. This is so much fun - I post a photo and others join in and offer comments or ask questions. This is such a rich experience for me, posting on the blog.
