    Shopping carts in the wild

    Shopping Cart in Dry Riverbed


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Kurzke found this shopping cart in the riverbed of the Rhine while in Bonn, Germany. "I took the photo as part of a photography assignment with the title 'out of place.' This shopping cart was way out of place," she said. Finding the shopping cart there was not only strange because it is miles away from a supermarket, but also because it has been made nearly impossible to steal shopping carts from supermarkets in Germany. "Most supermarkets use [shopping carts with] wheels that automatically lock when [they] leave the premises," she said.

    Title says it all, no? The riverbed was not completely dry but the waterline significantly less high than average. The cart was standing on a stony structure that is usually under water presumably to break waves.
    In the background you can see a fun fair on the other river bank.
