Inaugural Post: Trashcans and Dumpsters of Socorro, NM

Today I decided to open up Google Maps and see where the people of Socorro, NM keep their trash. Let's see what we've got.

Note that the wheel on the left corner is a couple of inches off the ground. Though it's relatively small, it might topple onto a baby: approach with caution.

Something not quite right about these two: no lids, and the backs are missing. A good Academy Awards dress if you want to get noticed.

I wasn't going to include these, but they are a good example of 'the huddle'. Part of being a good trio is knowing when to stick together.

There's dignity here, a sense of uprightness and the desire to be something fancier. This one dreams of being a piano.

This atrocity can be found outside the Soccorro County Detention Center. Anyway, you might say they need an extra dumpster, but I think they could have squeezed it all in neatly with a little effort.

This one again! I must have come full circle. What are the chances?!

Well, I think that's an omen and I should stop now before things get out of hand. Impressions: Soccoro seems like a desolate place. I saw one woman lurking in a doorway and a group of youths on the sidewalk. That's in an hour's wandering the streets.

The cars of Soccoro vastly outnumber the people, to the point where you think they might actually be the people, but transformed somehow.

Also, the Detention Center, Police HQ and Youth Center are all in close vicinity. This seems logical in a town where only youngsters dare to walk the streets.
