I recently encountered a website called Sad Stuff on the Street that features submitted photos from all over of, you guessed it, sad stuff on the street– from photos of teddy bears on trash piles, to a photo a plastic bag full of naked Barbies tied to a chain link fence, to various photos of broken and dirty children’s toys all by their lonesome.
Before encountering this website, I saw a singular Swedish Fish on the stairs of a train stop and moved by the multiple layers of sad of this scenario (a) someone dropped a Swedish Fish b) this Fish was filthy c) it was all alone), I took a picture of it.
When I found this site, I immediately submitted this photo. It was posted last week. I hope you enjoy, or rather are brought to tears by this Swedish Fish out of water:
