Detritus of the Day

No, not the title of a less reflective, more trenchant Ishiguro novel. Today's interesting detritus is a blue plastic garden chair, on the shoulder of the road, Greensborough Highway, Greensborough. The odd thing is that it's on the wrong side of a tall green chain-mesh fence, and quite some distance from the pedestrian bridge. How did it get there? Why do they make garden chairs in blue?

It's smashed now, but still largely in the same spot. It's two legs and a pile of plastic bits. Driving by it is a little American Beauty moment for the morning, tempered by reflections on commodity culture.
