Update post South American Vacation

At some point I will resurrect this couch blog but not as a daily depository of images of thrown out couches. BUT in the meantime here are three couches from Uruguay, Argentina, and Chile respectively.

Still Biking to Work Once in a While


 Last Wednesday I biked to work and although I really am not taking photos of couches any more, some addictions can not be easily given up. My new rule was that I will not photograph if the couch is in a pile of garbage and has no redeeming characteristics. But even this I can't adhere to as the last picture shows, when just beside the couch worth photographing is one that shouldn't be. In the old days eight would be a very good day!

Updating My Top Tens For 2014/2015 Photos - Cochrane Location top Ten

I have a few locations where I often see a couch. 
At this one the presentation can be nice or terrible.
From the 30 or so to choose from here are my top ten.

Updating My Top Tens For 2014/2015 Photos - Google Street View Couches

Another set that I  am not really updating as I never did this top ten before. The number one  was found  in 2011 from a Google Street view taken May 2009 - which I was able to deduce from my photo of this same couch. I did a series of blog posts in June 2011 where I showed 9 couches I found on Google streetview that I had taken a picture of the same couch.
from May 2015
number 3 and 4 I did not get a photo of the actual couch myself but they were on my standard bike route and I do find the composition I was able to make is better than the older ones

not one of the original nine found and blogged about in June 2011
the last five were all  from the original batch that I found 



only someone who knew this couch was there would be able to find it

Updating My Top Tens For 2014/2015 Photos - Couches with Fences

As the project evolves so do my top tens -  I started to arrange them in book form and saw that having multiple aspect ratios didn't work with the book format I wanted - no 1 on one page and nine on opposite page. So  the sets now will be same aspect ratio and I will be much less likely to use the same photo more than once.

 While compiling this list I ended up removing more or less the top five as they have been shown elsewhere, two in the red series, one each in the graffiti blue and signage series, Therefore what follows is a bit of a hybrid list
