Top Ten Seats from Cars #10

starting a new series a little bit off topic - but not that far- in fact in the first year of my photographing unwanted couches I considered more photos as being acceptable to the project than subsequent years. I still have been taking photos of them - so consider this like an appendix in a book.

from July 2, 2013

Top Ten Unusual Couches #6

from November 10, 2011-
 I still haven't figured these out, they remind me of those puzzles where you have to re-arrange to get them to work (like the old Transformers?)

Top Ten Unusual Couches #7

from September 3, 2012
at one point my definition of a couch/sofa for this project was that it needed to include upholstered material which I don't think this one does, but no question what it is - but still strange

the start of a new series of top ten - not really that unusual but this couch photo has a lot going for it, besides being not that normal, it is in an unusual location ( a future series?) and has graffiti (another series?)
from August 23 and 25, 2010
