  1. This would look great as a large print in someone’s living room!

    • Thanks, Ken. I think I’ve said this before: I plan to make some prints of these dumpster photographs and see if anyone else feels that way. I think most people who buy my prints prefer photographs of the Vermilion River or the nearby pond in the park. So it will be a gamble. But I think most of all, I want to see how these photos look printed. It’s something like what Gary Winogrand said: that he photographed because he liked to see how things look photographed. And I guess the next step would be wanting to see how your print looks hung in whatever environment. I’d like to see that, too. (I think.)

  3. Are all these vertical lines caused by runny paint? I can’t think of any other logical explanation. An extraordinary image in your collection of Dumpster images.

    • I, too, assume that what we’re looking at is paint that has dripped down like that. It was hardened by the time I photographed it. I truly doubt that these marks were made on purpose. They were on the inside of the dumpster. Someone probably just flung a can of paint into the bin—though how that managed to make this design baffles me.
