  1. #75 is a great shot, Linda. You have so many great photos in this project. I have been putting project photos on a separate page in my blogs but now I’m thinking of printing a book for each project. This would be separate from my yearly book (greatest hits of the past year). I’ve had good luck with books printed at Adorama Pix, if you’re interested in the idea. They seem to be a bit more expensive than some other book printers but I’ve been impressed with the overall quality. And they make lovely gifts!

    • Thank you, Ken, for believing in this project. I now have been given a deadline for an illustrated article about the dumpsters, to appear in the magazine produced at Kendal at Oberlin. This is the same magazine that published my piece called “Birth of an Obsession,” which was about the iron bacteria and which I shared here. I think the deadline will help me get this thing done; I’ve been putting it off because it hasn’t had a mandatory aspect. It would be very easy to add more photos and make a book of it. Blurb (through Lightroom) printed my book They Breathe Iron, and I was please with it. But just now I Googled Blurb vs AdoramaPix, and read several reviews that—along with your recommendation—have persuaded me to try AdoramaPix for the next book. Thanks for nudging me along. This is kind of exciting.

  2. A beauty, Linda, it could almost be a “before and after” with the previous one. Nicely distressed!

    • Thanks, Lynn. This is the same dumpster as the one depicted in the previous post. That’s probably why they look similar. I do hope that dumpsters continue to be made of metal. You just can’t get etchings like that on plastic.

      • Well, at least they have pretty long lives, and aren’t likely to be changed out too often. I’m happy to hear about the article. Be sure to link us to it when it’s done, OK?
