Strange London: The Toy Catcher

I don’t go out actively searching for things to photograph yet, I can’t help noticing things that I would like to see again – so I photograph them. Also, sometimes,  I would just like proof of a particularly strange sight.

At one of my son’s favourite playgrounds, I noticed that the refuse collection van had a collection of lost or abandoned toys strapped onto it’s back. I began to imagine a host of different ‘would be’ or ‘could be’ scenarios behind this sight because a rational tale wouldn’t quite do. One thing is for certain, Had I seen this as a child, I may well have had nightmares.

I wonder if you are wondering about the Toy Catcher now, too?
