  1. I love this series, and in particular how this one makes me think of a grassy field.

    • I’m so glad to know that you like (love!) this series, Mark. It’s a lot of fun to do. Because the dumpster-service people switch out the dumpsters fairly regularly I always seem to have new-to-me dumpsters to explore. Isn’t it interesting how far you can go in your head with photographs of these totally unintentional pieces of art.

      • That’s kinda funny! If only we could all have our subjects delivered! 🙂

        • Well maybe that’s why I like photographing the Vermilion River so much. The water level is always changing, so the shore is always changing, and the seasons’ changing mixes it up even more.. The same place is never the same.

  2. I love this one. I like calligraphic marks, which it has, and blue/brown combinations. And all those shadowy marks give it more depth. The slow gradation of color from lower left to upper right is mesmerizing. A good one!

    Re your last comment, Robert Irwin (I don’t know if you’re a fan of his, I am) has done sculptures using the phrase, “Ever present, never twice the same.” He had the phrase carved into a flat stone, and set it into the ground in the woods at Wave Hill, a public garden where I worked in the late 80’s. It felt good to come across the stone when walking in the woods there. It’s pictured on this blog – I just googled it.

    • Mm, yes. Thanks. I did not know of Robert Irwin (until Googling just now), but it makes perfect sense for a photographer to be attracted to his work, so much of which is about light. And, yes, his phrase certainly fits what I was saying above. I’m glad you see things you like in this photograph of mine. It’s probably the most delicate imagery in this current run of dumpster photographs.
