Manchester in January

People in my neighborhood often leave large objects on the sidewalk on the chance that the garbage men will pick them up. This tree was one of three I found in the span of as many blocks. The house next to ours is continuously disposing of old television sets (they got rid of the biggest flatscreen one first, then a set more appropriate for a living room entertainment center, and now there is a bedroom-sized one sitting on the curb). Another house discards printers and VCRs from twenty years ago, and I estimate that if they continue this trend they will one day be throwing out old 1080p monitors and iPod Touches for their neighbors to make fun of.
