That’s beautiful! I really like the mossy (?) part at the bottom.

Thank you, Peter. Yes, it’s either moss or algae.

Wow, we’re really letting it all hang out now. The expressionist side of dumpsters? The colors are very attractive – the whole sliver is, the more I look, the prettier it gets. That’s what these seem to do.

Thanks, Lynn. Despite some of my postings of a few weeks ago, I rarely look for faces where none are intended. But in this one, just this morning, long after creating this post, I saw two faces. The middle right one—in the brownish blob—is a little person, and the middle left one—in another brownish blob—is a little mammal. Click for the enlargement. But I prefer your reading of this photograph as Expressionism.

🙂 It moves back and forth from faces to expressionism to other things, seen by other people or seen by the same people at other times. But at its essence, it’s Lindaism.

Getting close to Abstract Art I would say, Linda.

I agree, Andy. I’m amazed at how many paint cans must not be really empty when they’re thrown into a dumpster.

I like this one especially.

Thanks, Elena. This one probably looks the most like a painting—because this dumpster has so much paint on it!
