Linda Grashoff's Photography Adventures

Dumpster Heaven and the All-Stars 1

March 21, 2016

It’s usually not a good idea, at least for me, to go hunting for specific images. I might not find what I’m looking for, and the hunt might blind me to other wonderful things along the path. But that’s what I did a week ago Sunday when I went hunting for dumpsters. I had walked further than I’d thought I’d have to to find a dumpster, photogenic or not. Then—whooee—the first one I found was worth the whole outing. It was an old large construction-site dumpster. You’ll be seeing a lot of it.

    • Thanks, Ken. Well, you can always call me when you need a photograph of a dumpster. On the website for AllStar Disposal & Recycling ( you can see how this dumpster may have started out.

    • Thank you, Melinda. It’s all I can do to restrain myself from hunting down even more dumpsters. But as you will see, if you keep watching this blog, I have many more dumpster images cued up—way into April. Some people are not going to be happy.

      • You can go ahead and put me in the “happy” group – I am very fond of your dumpster images, and don’t think there’s such a thing as too many of them!

  5. This is superb, and you are TOTALLY allowed to go looking for specifics now! 😉
