Over the years I have photographed hundreds of abandoned shopping carts throughout Petaluma’s landscape. This photo was taken on the Lynch Creek Trail with no thought given to composition, etc. It was just a quick point and shoot. Frankly, I barely remember taking the shot.
It was when I finally downloaded it that I realized that it was a tad unusual.
The cart was in the water but for some reason (the early morning light, the fog, whatever) it appears to be suspended in mid-air.
