Photographs of abandoned shopping trolleys
Lately I’ve noticed there’s been more abandoned supermarket shopping trolleys than usual in the Newstead and Fortitude Valley inner city locations. With camera in hand I decided to record them. The photos document an overturned trolley which is a bit worse for wear laying on its side in a rock garden on the corner of Doggett Street, Newstead, QLD 4006. Another is leaning against a power pole, and parked up beside The Beach Furniture store also on Doggett Street. Finally, a pair of trolleys deserted at Gasworks. Most of the dumped trolleys photographed were Woolworths supermarket shopping trolleys.
Unbeknownst to me there’s a Trolley Tracker website and App for the ease of reporting abandoned trolleys. According to a Council website trolleys which are not returned to their owner are considered litter.
Here’s a link to more street photography focused on inner city suburbs such as New Farm.
