It sure doesn’t. Thanks for sticking with me on the dumpsters, Ken. Believe it or not, I took this photograph on another side of the same dumpster that has appeared in the previous four days of this blog. I cannot account for the color difference. Maybe the other sides were painted more recently. Or maybe this side had a meeting with a color-changing chemical.

My guess is that the quality of light on this side is quite different than the other side and that accounts for the (apparent) difference in color.

Hm. I wonder. Will hope to find this dumpster again and see if I can verify your theory.

This one is smile material – the color is so contrary to the subject matter – I love that! It’s like bubblegum, with rust. I’m glad you found this dumpster and have done it justice.

Thank you, Lynn. I’ll probably go back to where I found it, but since it was a construction dumpster, there’s no telling whether it will still be there. . . .Yeah, a pink dumpster . . .

Dramatic colour – I wonder who chose the colour and decided to paint one side differently from the other.

If the sides are painted different colors. Maybe I’ll be able to determine that this weekend.
