This Amazes Me

There are moments when I see something that I am simply compelled to photograph. A beautiful sunset, for example, or my 4-year old neice playing with her friends.

Those are images that simply move me.

But there are images that I photograph simply because I can't believe I saw them. It's almost like I need to show this to other so I can have reassurance that I wasn't hallucinating.

Like when I went to shoot some photos of the Tipperary Pub - I saw a vacuum cleaner sitting in the middle of the Southfield service drive.

Exactly, in the middle.

Someone had to have positioned it there and done so deliberately. Perhaps as a commentary on "cleaning up the city". Perhaps they did it simply to make people like me photograph it and talk about it.

I don't know who put it there or how long it will stay, but the simple fact that it was there is something I won't forget any time soon.
