Right here waiting

(Last one from Cat Street)
Amongst stacks and piles of second hand toys and collectibles (or junks?) outside this Cat Street shop are our old friends, Mickey and Minnie, waiting optimistically for someone to take them home. While I took this photo I imagined how funny it would be if I could get a photo of Mickey and Minnie standing guard for the Mao Zedong figurines (see earlier post), I couldn't help but chuckled to myself ;-). Have a good week everyone!

I like the spot of soft color in the black-and-white - very nice! Funny (appropriate) to see M&M treated like trash, and like art, at the same time!

and I also see christmas decoration in the other boxes on the left side, is that correct...
And by the way for how much were they selling Mikey and Minnie?

Never seen a Mickey in blue overalls before. Did they make Mickey at the same place as the "antiques" they sell at Cat Street? :)

And 'in season' 'Sunkist Oranges' - lots in this photograph too to keep the eye occupied!

Oddly enough I really liked this photo as it was coming in (the thrill of dialup) and then when the Mickey and Minnie appeared it was like, wow, this is really a cool photo. You just find yourself looking around in it, finding things, like the sideways photo in the back or the Sunquist box.

I had a slow page load too and at first I thought they were moving boxes. I was much happier to see M&M rather than having the thought of moving!

Nice use of color here.

I cannot get out of my head the idea that a small army of Snoopys is trying to get out of the suffocating plastic box! Hurrey, save the Snoopys!

Superbe montage. les couleurs sont tres belles, cela done une impression de vieilles photos.
J'espere que quelqu'un aura adopté minnie et mickey ;o)

well well...I must say you are very observant...

Kris, good eye seeing the snoopys, there's also a photo of a 60s movie star in the middle background

Alex, decorations yes but not sure if they are for X'mas though

Anonymous...I think I have seen Mickey's other wardrobe including this one

again, I was very focused on taking the photo and didn't notice the price.

also check out this funny photo sent by a visitor...hilarious...!
