This is a brief photo essay of one bottle’s fate.  It appeared that this particular bottle was first discarded on the sidewalk remarkably close to a nearby trash bin…

before someone stopped, picked it up, and put in the bin.

Having photographed in this area many, many times, it is fair to say that there are many, many bottles (and cans and paper bags and…) left on the sidewalk, if not in the actual street, and it would be an annoyance to stop and pick up each one when out for a morning run or walk.  This last person did exactly that, though, as it is also unpleasant to see the amount of trash left on the ground, especially when there are bins for its disposal.  

Imagine what our neighborhoods would look like if everyone took the responsiblity to properly dispose of trash in the first place.  This last thought is worth considering as the Fourth of July holiday is right around the corner.

Take care.
