The first week of January was xmas tree pick-up week in my neighbourhood. I'd seen the trees accumulate on my street and it was interesting to see how they got moved around throughout the week (of course the city was a week late in the pick-up). Our tree ended up across and down the street by the end. So one evening I bundled up and spent some time photographing all these discarded Christmas accessories. Kind of sad how we just throw them away in the end.
