You can see the garbage collector in the corner of the photo. He was the cause of my embarrassment. I was talking to this 70 year old man who also told me that he had never thrown out furniture in his life, and I confidently told him that I was waiting to take a picture of the couch being thrown into the truck. When they passed without removing it, I felt that my couch expertise was being put into question. I didn't even have the chance to tell him that they can leave them on Mondays but that Thursdays they always take them. (I learned this from talking to a janitor after he asked me what I was doing)

We went to see the biennale exhibit at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Montreal and I was a bit surprised to see this work by Taysir Batniji from his series of photos taken in Bahrain. His work is ",,,,,displacement disappearance and illusion are central continuing themes."
Maybe one day I will be acknowledged.
