. . . shot trashy pictures




I don't pretend to be a photographer, but I do love to take pictures. I tend to point and click at something interesting and then take it to the computer and crop until I get something even more interesting. That's what happened with these two photos.





These are actually pictures of the same pile of trash, one side and the other. I love the color (or lack thereof), the bits of graphics, the texture of the papers. Thumbnail-sized, they look like fabulous collages. Look, in the second one, there's even "arts". . . although I believe it's a parts box, considering that I took this picture at a place called "General Muscle Cars" in my hometown.

Love these black and white trash images - wonderful idea - what if ....you were a photographer?

Thank you, Rose; sometimes inspiration is hard to come by. . .

Wow great pics. I love what you can do with digital. I am the village idiot when it comes to photography, and yet once in a while there's a gem in there - more so with cropping and various other aspects of photo editing.

In my hands a regular camera was basically a waste of time and money.

Jazz: Me, too. I'm so glad digitals were invented. As well as computer editing software.
