This week Tina offers me quite a challenge. I need to look into my photographs and display those Odds and Ends that I have collected over the years. My friend Anne likes to say that I shoot unusual things. And I do. But when I import my images I like to place each photo into a category. Sometimes the categories become so large that I then subdivide it even further. And when I am feeling some stress, I will review and make even more changes. Probably fits in with my professonal career as a librarian. I took my catalog quite seriously, and I wanted everyone to be able to find what they needed. So how does this make the challenge more challenging for me? Many of my odd photos have found their way into a larger group, and so they are not so odd after all. But I digress.
In my first digital photography class I was to decide on a subject and take 100 images. Then another 100 images. My subject was Garbage Cans. My professor said that by the time I was finished the subject would always have a special place in my heart. And she was correct. I will always be on the lookout for a new and different garbage can to add to my collection.
I found design element in some cans.
Some Garbage Cans served a double purpose by providing the user with location information.
Some creative ways to make the garbage cans fit with its surroundings.I found this garbage can near an airplane ride at Bishop’s Farm in Wheatland, Ca.
At Folsom City Zoo Sanctuary I found these garbage cans
A garbage cans found in unusual location.
My street photography
For the most part Sacramento and its surrounds had pretty clean cans, but sometimes there is one that is neglected.
If you look around you will notice a plethora of shapes, sizes and colors.
That is just a small sample of my odd collection of garbage cans. Will you be on the lookout for interesting trash cans?
