Communal Garbage Rooms

Only in Surry Hills would you find not one, but two, “artificial limbs” in the communal garbarge room of your apartment block. Calling them “artificial limbs” is a little dramatic, I know, as… Continue reading

Fully Sick

As I left the house I couldn’t help but notice the rather exotic looking bar stool in the back laneway. There were shades of “The Sound of Music”, I thought to myself, with… Continue reading

Discarded Wardrobe

As I walked to work this morning I snapped these shots of a wardrobe which has been literring the back laneway. I can understand why it hasn’t been taken away already, as it’s… Continue reading

So Cold

Another day, another discarded item. Yesterday I mentioned the terrific sound system I found in the back laneway. Today, it’s a lovely sloppy-joe I bought at the Salvation Army store near Oxford Street.… Continue reading

Sneaky Sound System

As previously canvassed on this blog, I’m a great fan of the discarded furniture and such that’s often found in my back laneway. At a philsophical level, my view is there’s enough crap… Continue reading

Domestic Sunday

I’ve spent 30 minutes or so tonight doing some hand-washing. Unfortunately my washing machine is acting up at the moment. It does it from time to time, regrettably. Normally, I just need to… Continue reading

Discarded Everything

It’s been a while since I did one of my “discarded posts”. Hi Andrea! There’s no particular reason, other than my neighbours haven’t been throwing much out lately. There was a paper shredder,… Continue reading

Discarded Computer Screen

You know how I often take photographs of crap people leave in my back lane-way and call them “discarded posts”. And then I rabbit on about similar items I’ve had on the past.… Continue reading

Discarded Couch

I was awfully tempted to hook the baby-poo couch to my back and walk it up the stairs when I saw it in the back laneway the other day. Although the colour is… Continue reading

Discarded Leftovers

You know what it’s like when you can’t find something. No matter where it should be, it just isn’t. I have this problem with the Foxtel remote, at the moment by the way.… Continue reading

Best Post Ever

Apologies, first of all, to The Other Andrew for another grainy photograph from my camera phone. Yes, it was taken in almost complete darkness and it needed some basic photoshopping, but I honestly… Continue reading

Ironing Board

On the way to work this morning I noticed someone down the road had thrown out their ironing board. That makes sense, I thought. I mean, who needs an ironing board? I loathe… Continue reading

It’s been a while since I’ve posted something in my “discarded category”. Maybe it’s the wet weather that’s stopped people from throwing stuff out? Or maybe it’s just that time of the year.… Continue reading

I don’t think it’s “tip night” (one of those nights where the local council encourages people to leave out rubbish they no longer need to be picked up and disposed off), but there’s… Continue reading

The Old Matresss

Casting out an old matress must be a dramatic thing to do. You spend eight hours a night on the matress – unless of course, you fall asleep on the couch. You have… Continue reading
