Vending Machines, No. 9

Click to enlarge.


  1. I don't know if it has been pointed out but, sadly, in some places vending machines would get broken into all the time. People even trash those free newspaper boxes in Halifax, when there's noting in them.

  2. somethng sort of festive about this one.

    Don't tell the vending machines, but, I am quite fond of the trash cans. They make me think of R2D2.

  3. Pierre,
    Yeah, the subject has come up. Basically in the 9+ years I've been in Miyazaki I have only seen one vandalized vending machine. It's quite (pleasantly) surprising, really, especially when you consider that these things accept folding money (and some of them sell beer and cigarettes)!

    Here in Japan, the "recycle" bins are the yang to the vending machines' yin...

  4. Hmm, I'm still waiting for the pic of the imp that makes those machines work. Good thing I'm not holding my breath, eh?
    Great shot, especially with the two bins conferring to one side - I swear there's an alien plot going on.

  5. AV,
    Heh, the "plot" may come more closely into view in the next installment...
