The urban views are great, (hmm, maybe a photo class field trip in the making) but what I most adore, is my beloved "Trash Heap."
|A relatively quiet day at the Trash Heap. The city comes by regularly to haul it away. |
I can't help but be a little disappointed when I come across a recently emptied spot.
Two places along the hillside roads have become common illegal dump sites for the most wonderful variety of things. I know I'm supposed to be outraged, but I'm enamored. From construction material to children's toys to love letters, I've found it all. Sometimes I bring things home to use in the home or garden:
|These glass blocks came home with me. They are now book ends.|
|I considered taking home this angel head, |
but when someone else created a "City of the Angels" art piece by tangling it in the fence, I left it there.
|And some bamboo came home to replace a broken gate.|
