Decarie and Snowdon SW

at lunch  - Monday November 12

I was extremely happen to get this photo. Lately I feel I have not only been competing with the garbage trucks but also free lance garbage pickers. Recently I took a photo on the first day of a hide a bed type couch with the hide-a-bed part and the next day the metal had been removed. Here my photo captures the metal being removed from the couch as it happens.

a couch that almost fit the instagram hashtag "Sofafree",
but here in Quebec it actually said "Free/Gratuit"

Cote St Luc Body

This past week they found a body at one of the best locations to find couches. My wife called to tell me that I shouldn't go there. Below a few photos from the archives 2010 and 2011 at this location (or you can search Cote St Luc and Decarie NW)

Mariette and Fielding NW

Going home - Friday November 9
It is not that often that I see the same couch on more than one day (and if I do I haven't yet been able to figure out exactly why). I took the first photo in the dark on Friday and it was still there Monday morning - but yesterday's post was no longer around!? The photo below is Monday's.

TransIsland and Dupuis SW

at lunch - Friday November 9
as I approached this trailer from the other side I wasn't sure if this was two good chairs or not. Then I noticed two guys throwing bricks in front of them. I asked if I could take a picture. They said "of the bricks?" "no, of the couch" and then with a laugh "it's not for sale"

Westbury and Cote St Catherine NE

at lunch - Friday November 2
It looks like with the shorter days (it is dark when I bike home) I will have to resume posting only one couch a day. I also decided when there are no couches found once it snows I will post all the couches from 2012 that I photographed prior to starting the blog.
