Batteries | by spatulated
Back to photostream


I got off the bus 3 stops to early Yesterday. While walking the 20ish blocks I had to go I came across 5 3ft high stacks of batteries. The fact that they where 3 feet high was an interesting subject, but there was too much clutter around to get a good clean image. So here is the top of the stack. There is about one more row of batteries to the left completely off screen, and the stack is about 4 layers thick.


I think this image as a mass produced quality about it, both is a good way - as in it captures a scene of mass consumption - and in a very bad way - as in this photo has been done 1000 times over with batteries, cell phones, water bottles, etc.
