That looks like WalMart, ya?

Like a platoon of wheeled blue soldiers.

That's funny. I have chairs, and you have carts. I really like your composition and colors here. By the way, if you have time and want to see the Boston chairs with what came before and after, it's part of a post of a long walk through Logan Airport. It's kind of a funny post, and the flight attendant conversation at the end is real :) And I am eating junk food again (but not a lot), but I wasn't at that time :(

Well they certainly look pretty uniform.

Gunn said...

So simple and so nice.
I like the colors and lines.

Superbe idée, des caddies zombies qui veulent rentrer dans le centre commercial ;o))

VP said...

A beautiful blue, ready to start...

I seem to recall seeing a video that looked similar to this shot. I am not sure what the circumstances where as it was a while a go that I watched it.... but the punchline to the video was all the carts shot out the door into a loading dock.
I see this and am waiting for the door to open.....

they look like they're being lined up for jail :)

Is this from Wal-Mart? I believe they have blue carts.

One of our local grocery stores recently shut down. The choices of where to shop for food are getting really limited. Basically we have Kroger and Wal-Mart. And I'm worried that one day the Wal-Mart will take over everything.

Fun shot ..

Nice that they are there instead of out in the parking lot where they can really do some damage to your car when careless people don't put them up! (Yes I have issues with shopping carts after one took off a lot of the paint on my brand new car a few years back. OK I'm done now.)

I really like your photo, well composed and with my favorite colors!

Per Stromsjo said...

All in good order. I did the parking-lot version recently. Less colour, more snow. Right now, I prefer your version. We're done with the snow department for quite a while now.

I like bfarr's description. And I love the photo, it's so graphic!

Irina said...

I have seen this situation hundred times, only now you made it look like a piece of art.

I'm thinking this is Lowe's. We have a Lowe's her in East Gwillimbury - bet you didn't KNOW that. I think the store claims to be in Newmarket, though, which is a much larger town. LOL

This reminds me of the kind of shot I might take...with tons of onlookers thinking I'm a nut case. But hey! I think it's a FUN shot!

JM said...

A chorus line! Lol!

Step, ball change, kick. LOL. Great shot, lots of vibrancy within the contrasts of tones and light.

Are they singing the "blues"? I like this.

Love this photo.
