Sweet Trashy Love

Untitled

I suffered some eye rolls and snickers while photographing this stinky, drippy, rusty dumpster. But they didn't see what I saw.

This thing was a smorgasbord of big-machine details, geometric shapes, and fabulous textures. I'll be toying with the shots for a week.

So. I fell in love with a dumpster. And now I'm on a rust kick. But I have to admit I did not poke my head into those dark shadows in the corners.

Isn't the saying something like one man's garbage is another's treasure (paraphrased). Likewise, why not the refuse container? The rust is an organic color anyway, so it is perfect for shadows. Nicely captured!

I love it! I'm playing with dead flies and you're playing in dumpsters! What a pair we make! Some people just don't get it, but their loss I say! This is AWESOME!

Actually, to me, it looks like a work of art. Something from the walls of a museum.

Be careful. Rust is addictive. As you may have noticed when you visited my place!
