Description 

Canada born self-taught photographer Earl J. Simons depicted a single file of interlocking shopping carts lining against a wall with horizontal strip-claddings. The silver-grey tone of the metal carts with curvetted legs echoing the metallic cladding of the wall only to be interrupted by a line of red colored handle-bars. This photograph presents an urban slice in an utmost simplicity.
