Shopping Carts on Film! (13 Photos)

I’m still a little burned out from our recent project, so here’s a fun little post. All shopping carts — all on film. Could there be a better combo? I think not.

And if you really want to see something cool, check out this short documentary titled “City of Lost Carts“. It’s about a guy who spent a lot of time photographing shopping carts on film.

And if you have some shopping cart photos of your own (film or digital), feel free to leave them in the comments below!

I’m a procrastinator, and Christmas gifts are no exception. If you’re anything like me, you still haven’t finished your holiday shopping. Lucky for us, Amazon.com has a great selection of goodies and they have one and two day shipping available on most purchases.

So here are a few items to browse through for your fellow photography enthusiasts — we’re not picky, anything photography-related is an awesome gift. And even if you can’t get it to them by the 25th, I’m sure they’ll forgive you.

Feed readers will probably have to visit the the actual webpage to see the selection of gift ideas.

Please join me in welcoming CheckCost to our list of publication sponsors! They’ve decided to grab a sidebar position and the only spot on the home page!

CheckCost deals with consumer goods, including many electronics items (plus a lot of other stuff). They provide a central location for price comparisons, reviews, and ratings of the items found on their site. For each item on their website, multiple vendors are shown along with the price they offer, availability of the item, a vendor rating, and more.

The main category of offerings that we’re probably interested in is photography, but CheckCost has a few others you might want to search through. Computers, software, and other electronics are just a few of the other categories that may be useful for us photographers.

So next time you’re in the market for some new photography equipment (or anything else you can buy online), head over to CheckCost and take a look at the prices and vendor ratings. Paying too much for something is never fun, and dealing with sleazy vendors is a nightmare — so let CheckCost be your guide.
