just a word of warning .. do not get too excited I am still have a car park as focus .. although today not one at the end of commute. This morning I was walking through a large public car park, and thinking that perhaps the most common lost thing I see on the ground of the car park at work, and that is basically an adult space as it is for staff, are hair ties. Those stretchy bands, usually brown or black, ( to be fair not what I usually record in my treasure list .. I do prefer the shiny things) and looking around as I walked it seems this is the same here, to.
Then with that thought in mind and scanning the ground, my eye was attracted to a shiny thing. The shine was the sun being reflected from a band of selotape. The sticky tape was holding together a lock of hair. The perfect thing then, expecting to find hair ties and coming across the hair, curved, tied, caught in the middle – and also shiny in the sun. Reddy-brown, quite thick. But was it real or artificial? I did not touch it … some other shiny things I will ‘capture’.. I have a little collection in the car, mainly because they are (obviously) rubbish, but hair is so emotive – I could not remove it. I had the thought that maybe someone might come back.
Last night when I went to refresh the parking fee there was a little black and white bear perched on the machine.
Another sad loss. .and one which may have been a little traumatic.
A public car park is a much bigger issue when considering treasures found, more in the order of treasures, and stories, lost.
