  1. Love this – the plant’s green makes it. A 🙂

    • Thanks, Adrian. When I peeked over the side of this dumpster and saw the plant stem, I knew I had to go home and grab my camera.

  2. This composition is pure gold, in more ways than one.

    • Thank you, Ken. This is the floor of the dumpster. I had to hold the camera over the edge and shoot blindly. Took quite a few attempts to get something usable. This is a construction dumpster, so it’s strange that the leaves are there. . . . Rust can be a beautiful thing.

  4. 81, wow! That is some intense color there, very unusual, I think because the paint and rust shared their “habitat” for so long that they got to look alike, then that bright green came along and mixed it up. Very nice. And again, it’s the bottom but it looks to me like the side, like the leaf is falling. Lovely!

    • Yeah, 81, and that’s only the dumpster photos I’ve taken in Oberlin. I’m developing quite a collection. I confess that I punched up the green a tad in this one, but the other colors are pretty true. Rust really can get pretty bright. I agree that the green leaf looks like it’s falling.

      • Rust, and around here, wood gets really orange, and I find myself toning it down sometimes. And green sometimes, it’s very green here. Whatever you did to this one, it’s very, very nice. You know, it shares something with some that Ken did in the last few days, that graceful curve, don’t you think? And the background too, a little.

        • Oh, yeah. I know what you mean about Ken’s photos. Hunh.
