Isabella and Dufferin SE

going home - Thursday July 19
Walked my bike home today - took the most direct route and was surprised to come across this one

Jacques Grenier and Decarie SW

at lunch - Thursday July 19
another on this side of Decarie proving my theory that they don't look like that they belong to anyone

Connaught and West Broadway NW

from the archives at the same location

Cote St Luc and Randall NE

below  from the archives a red couch on a lawn ( but not unwanted as I took the photo at the Shelbourne Museum)

Mountain Sights and Cote St Catherine NW

at lunch - Wednesday July 18
here are some incredibly difficult lighting conditions with taking photos of unwanted couches. A bit like weddings with the black blacks and white whites; the extra problem I have is that I can't ask them to move.
below a different version taken Tuesday July 23 ( I guess some of the people who put the couches in the garbage trucks are on holiday!)

Van Horne and Decarie NW

at lunch - Wednesday July 18
below the following Tuesday July 24 - but with another quasi couch on top of it

Place Durnford and Decarie NW

two views of the two couches at this location
at lunch - Wednesday July 18

below two new versions from Tuesday July 23

Rosedale and Fielding NW

going home - Tuesday July 17
my son gave me a drive home and he understands my sickness and graciously stopped to let me take this photo

Orphelinat and Cote St Luc NW

Going to work - Tuesday July 17
Had to take the bus to work this morning as my pedal fell off my bike. I had seen a couch at Decarie and Cote St. Luc the night before from the bus; so I went back to look, but it was gone. I was unlucky - when I saw this one.

Cumberland and Fielding SW

going to work - Monday July 16
I just remembered that I would have passed this house every day on my way to grade school at Saint Monica's

Connaught and Patricia SW

going home - Thursday July 12
liked how the two couches echoed the two doors of the building
a couple of days later in a different configuration

Randall and Fielding NE

going home - Thursday July 12

Decarie and Cote-St. Luc NW

at lunch - Thursday July 12
one from the same location (and feel) from Canada Day 2011

Westhill and Fielding NW

going to work - Wednesday, July 11
the only ones of the day - 3 at the same location ( can't figure out what happens to some of these couches on the way to the garbage)

West Broadway and Terrebonne NW

Going home - Tuesday July 10 
really an armchair not a sofa or couch (I was told by an instagr.am friend) Now I have to hash tag this photo with #armchairfree rather than #sofafree


My first year of taking photos of unwanted couches I treated car benches as legitimate photos for inclusion in the project. I no longer do - but I have had a few in the last few days. I never have seen so many at one spot. You can see the couch I posted a few days ago now accompanied.

and yet another I have added (an older style)

Hingston and Cote-St. Luc SW

going to work - Tuesday July 10
I was lured down Randall (and rather than turn back I biked along Cote St Luc) and it seems that these detours always become successful.

Randall and Cote-St. Luc NW

Photographed my first couch here a few days ago - and now there were three right beside each other....fits with my multiple couch theory

Montclair and Fielding NW and NE below

Going home - Monday July 9

sometimes I don't get my bike out of the picture

Montclair and Fielding NE

I am often mentioning that the couches are only on the side of the road for a few hours - then for some reason a couple stay around for a while (what did they do to piss off the garbage men?) 
I do like how their formation changed

going home - Thursday July 5

coming home - Monday July 9

going to work - Thursday July 12
(and it was still there in the evening)

Decarie and Snowdon NE

at lunch - Monday July 9 
usually the photos are on the other side of Decarie - when on this side of Decarie they don't seem to be attached to any house in particular

Queen Mary and Transisland Sw

at lunch Monday July 9
Not a classic chesterfield; but it does meet the definition that the arms are at the same height as the back of the couch ( They may have to be rounded?!)

Wednesday, July 18, 2012

Transisland and Cote St. Catherine NE

at lunch - Monday July 9
(will post two a day for a few days again)

Elmhurst and St. Jacques NE

Going to work PM / home?  Thursday July 5
For all those people plotting my photos on a map - you may be wondering why I am at this corner. It was on my way to a client for an evening meeting; the company location is just a little past my house.

Coolbrook and Snowdon NW

at lunch - Thursday July 5
(it did have cushions at one time - I often see cushions and wait for the couch to appear and never have it come - this was the opposite situation)

Cote St. Luc and Snowdon NW

at lunch - Thursday July 5 
(I wonder where the rest of sectional is?)
one from the archives at this spot in this winter - just before I started the blog
