Trash or Treasure?


Do you ever come across something and leave wondering "what in the world is the story behind that?" Well, that happened this weekend.  Ryan found a cool park at the North end of Lake Washington that had a set of docks.  There were fishermen fishing, kids swimming, and jet skiers spinning donuts on the water. It was a pretty neat place to check out.  

At the end of the dock, there was this old rusted bike.  It looked like it hadn't been touched in ages.  What is the story behind that bike? Why has everyone left it alone instead of taking it to the trash at some point? 

On another section of the dock, there is a collection of old glass bottles.  Just like the rusted bike, they have obviously been sitting there in the Seattle rain and sun for a very long time.  Why? What some would consider trash, do others consider art? Or are people just too lazy to clean up after themselves?

I doubt I'll ever know the answer.  While I'm a bit baffled by the "trash," it does make for some pretty interesting pictures. :)

Trash or treasure?
