My favourite reading corner. I think it’s high time that we get our stuff out of storage. Black and white framed photography prints by the John Edwards. Whicker hanging chair – the best thrift shop find! – Beacon, New York.
We saw this man often on 6th Ave, near our apartment, pushing his precariously overloaded, wobbly old shopping cart. One amongst many men, and women, you can see every day on the streets of NYC, heads buried deep into the public trash cans, sifting through, collecting discarded tin cans, bottles, and plastic, in order to reclaim the five cents refundable deposit charged to consumers on purchases of beer, soda, and water containers, in the city. This is often their only means of making a living.
