The

bin

across

the

road

There’s a bin across the road. Dutch text on the sign above it roughly translates to: “Do you want to live on a clean street? Then don’t leave your rubbish beside the bin.” The evidence above suggests that the sign is largely ignored, or not understood.

No matter what lockdown — hard, soft, intelligent or whatever — it was, I photographed the bin as part of my WFH routine with whatever camera was to hand. Texture comes from a combination of extending the zoom and composing shots through dirty windows.

Funnily enough, aside from the fellow dumping his monitors, I never saw anyone leave anything there.
