Thank you, Peter. I’m glad you like it. It’s that orange and blue combination again.

Thanks, Harrie. I wonder if the darker paint was added to cover some offensive graffiti. I often see patches of paint like this on dumpsters.

Love the peripheral “cloudiness” here.

Thanks. That’s good to hear, Adrian. I was wondering if I should have cropped closer, but I liked that line of welding at the top of the frame.

This is a real beauty, and you framed it so well – it does become a painting. I love that haze of white around the edges, and of course, the heavy textured paint, or whatever it was, around the rusty scratch.

Thank you, Lynn. I don’t know what that stuff is around the rusty scratch. It could be paint, or it could be glue that held some kind of sign affixed to the dumpster. I should pay more attention when I’m photographing perhaps. I think I’m only considering color and composition.

Whatever your’e doing, it works! And I’m sure you’re paying attention to texture, on some level.

Oh, yes, texture. I forgot to say texture. I think I’m usually attentive to that.

Thank you, Daniel. Who ever thought a dumpster could be beautiful?
