Thanks, Markus. I was thinking of some kind of underwater creatures, too.

My favorite color combination is blue and yellow but the orange/brown works well, too. You could make a book of these dumpster images.

Thanks for the nudge, Ken. You are the second person to suggest this. I have in mind to do another short piece for the Eureka!, Kendal at Oberlin’s in-house magazine, but I do have more photographs than would fit. I will definitely think about it. And if I do pull it off, you (and my other 471 followers) will be the first to know.

I put out a book each year , a sort of “best of…”, consisting of my favorite photos from the past year. I have them printed and give them away to all those I want to punish at Christmastime. I’ve been meaning to publish it as a PDF and make them available to anyone who want to punish themselves but my work with the Procrastinators of America keeps getting I the way, though.

I could do that, couldn’t I. And I wouldn’t even have to give up my membership in the PoA if I actually did, because I have many other projects that will keep me in good standing.

Inch by inch, we explore the dumpster with you…
What exactly is the membership requirement for PoA? I think i could be an exemplary member, given the chance.
(For the Eureka! piece I think a selection would be fine, no?)

Yes, a selection will work for Eureka!, but unless I can command the cover again, there are only two other color pages, and I have sooooo many dumpster photos that really should be seen bigger than postage-stamp size. At least I think they should. I’m not familiar with all the membership requirements or bylaws of PoA. All I know is that I was a shoe-in. And I’m not sure there is a membership chair; I think we never got around to electing anyone. Ken may know more.
