Sometimes Even Trash Looks Pretty

Can you tell I am looking at everything with a different eye? I want to take a picture of everything! The first thing I do in the morning is charge the camera battery. Used to be the first thing I did was pour a cup of coffee.

This is my morning's trash after I clipped some flowers.

I still haven't decided what camera to get! I want one SO bad.

LL Cool Joe said...

Ha ha, I think that happens when you have a blog. Everything we do and see becomes a potential photo opportunity!

Ms.A, my son gave us the camera. It is a Canon Power Shot. There are lots I don't use yet on it, but I will.

LL Cool Joe, yep, I find myself saying often "that would be a good post" or "I want a pic of that for the blog".

That is very pretty trash!

Brian Miller said...

nice...i think there is beauty in everything, you just got to find it...

Dave King said...

You're right. The seeing eye can produce beauty in a photograph or painting though none seemed there before. I've heard all sorts of explanations, but stll can not find a convincing one.

My camera is a Canon PowerShot, my second camera. The first was one of those, too, but this one has a zoom that I just LOVE.

And your trash is really quite pretty! :-)

I have that same trash can right here under my desk....I have never thought of planting flowers in it. What a pretty use you have made of it.

I wish all trash cans could look as beautiful :)

Isn't photography fun? It's exactly that - you look at everything with a different eye and notice the smallest subtle changes in light and shadow and such. It's great fun.

I think I'd be sticking that trash in a vase.

I know the feeling... not of being a trashy flower or flowery trash but of wanting to photograph everything. You have a good eye.

Got the bug, girl.....:)

Momma Fargo said...

Love it. You have quite the eye for capturing things people might disregard, no pun intended.

Unknown Mami said...

I love it! That's such a huge part of why I started doing SIMC, so that I would continually notice the beauty that surrounds me.

Oh, and I bet the Canon Power Shot is awesome!
