Don't blame me - blame the random # generator in Excel :D</p>

<p>I am choosing assignments by listing suggestions in a spreadsheet, and the next column is a randomly generated # between 0 and 1.  Highest # is the assignment</p>

<p>This isn't really my submission for this assignment, because it isn't a good photo.  I wish I'd had my regular camera this day.  I was volunteering with a group to clean up along the river and someone found this old car battery with plants growing in it.  Still, if waste = trash, then with a proper photographic treatment of the subject, this could have been really a really nice image.</p>

Wasn't sure what you meant by "not really good photo".  I found the composition captivating.  Then I saw your shadow - but still, an interesting shot.</p>

<p>I thought that it looked a bit washed out on the whiter parts of the battery, the shadow was distracting, and it was not as sharp a focus as I would have liked.  Thanks for the more positive reviews than I gave it myself. <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif" title=""></p>

<p>This was not easy, but I think I have a few that will fall under the category. These were taken with my son's Kodak EasyShare C360 and have had - at most - some mild cropping and some shadows accentuated.</p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>These first two shots are of an old coal-burning stove that came with the garage when we bought our house. It's sitting outside now and slowly rusting away.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.kickrunners.com/content/type/61/id/53126/width/1000/height/800/flags/" target="_blank"><img alt="006.JPG" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="13202" data-type="61" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/content/type/61/id/13202/width/667/height/500" style="; width: 667px; height: 500px"></a></p>
<p> </p>
<p><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.kickrunners.com/content/type/61/id/53128/width/1000/height/800/flags/" target="_blank"><img alt="009.JPG" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="13203" data-type="61" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/content/type/61/id/13203/width/585/height/500" style="; width: 585px; height: 500px"></a></p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>These next two are from a dumpster behind our local grocery store. The first one is an interesting contrast of straight and curved lines. The other one shows how much good strawberry is left even after the store has to throw it away. I think the one blueberry in the picture makes an interesting statement, as does the fly sitting on the big berry.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.kickrunners.com/content/type/61/id/53130/width/1000/height/800/flags/" target="_blank"><img alt="033.JPG" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="13204" data-type="61" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/content/type/61/id/13204/width/730/height/500" style="; width: 730px; height: 500px"></a></p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.kickrunners.com/content/type/61/id/53132/width/1000/height/800/flags/" target="_blank"><img alt="034.JPG" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="13205" data-type="61" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/content/type/61/id/13205/width/629/height/500" style="; width: 629px; height: 500px"></a></p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>This is from a recycle drum behind a local Mexican restaraunt (sp?).</p>
<p> </p>
<p><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.kickrunners.com/content/type/61/id/53134/width/1000/height/800/flags/" target="_blank"><img alt="042.JPG" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="13206" data-type="61" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/content/type/61/id/13206/width/667/height/500" style="; width: 667px; height: 500px"></a></p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>This one's the waste bucket under the tint canisters in the paint department of our local hardware store. The vivid colors speak for themselves.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.kickrunners.com/content/type/61/id/53136/width/1000/height/800/flags/" target="_blank"><img alt="048.JPG" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="13207" data-type="61" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/content/type/61/id/13207/width/667/height/500" style="; width: 667px; height: 500px"></a></p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Finally, the waste oil pit at our local Jiffy Lube. It's kind of hard to tell that there's used motor oil there, but I like how well it catches the reflection of the building (something I didn't realize when I took the picture).</p>
<p> </p>

<p>My DS decided to tag along when I took my pictures for this assignment (see previous post) and took some of his own. Here's the shots he likes.</p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>This one is fairly stark in its simplicity, and pretty much speaks for itself.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.kickrunners.com/content/type/61/id/53147/width/1000/height/800/flags/" target="_blank"><img alt="036.JPG" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="13209" data-type="61" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/content/type/61/id/13209/width/667/height/500" style="; width: 667px; height: 500px"></a></p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Banana peel in a neighbor's yard. It almost looks spider-like, with the different peels going in different directions.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.kickrunners.com/content/type/61/id/53149/width/1000/height/800/flags/" target="_blank"><img alt="lowreswasteBanana.jpg" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="13210" data-type="61" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/content/type/61/id/13210/width/667/height/500" style="; width: 667px; height: 500px"></a></p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>This one is looking down the length of a construction-waste bin. There's a restaraunt to the right that's being remodeled, and this is the trash coming from that remodeling.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.kickrunners.com/content/type/61/id/53151/width/1000/height/800/flags/" target="_blank"><img alt="060.JPG" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="13211" data-type="61" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/content/type/61/id/13211/width/703/height/500" style="; width: 703px; height: 500px"></a></p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>"A mind is a terrible thing to waste." I was scouting the dumpster to see if I thought it had any possibilities, and I didn't realize DS was taking this shot.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.kickrunners.com/content/type/61/id/53153/width/1000/height/800/flags/" target="_blank"><img alt="057.JPG" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="13212" data-type="61" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/content/type/61/id/13212/width/668/height/500" style="; width: 668px; height: 500px"></a></p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>DS would appreciate any comments you have about his photographic skills.</p>

<p><strong>rlemert-</strong> nice photos!  Of yours, I like the paint bucket the best.  The vivid colors really are nice, but also like the contast of the grey at the top of the photo.  Of your sons, I like the sewer cover.  This is a case where I think having the photo centered is an asset rather than a detriment because to me it looks like a bullseye. </p>

<p>I too, like Bard, like the sewer cover shot, and the paint bucket shot...</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Who woulda thunk it...waste is hard to shoot without being to "obvious". </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I still haven't gotten a shot yet on the topic.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Which makes it all the more challenging and interesting.</p>

<p>Okay so, hors concours so that everyone knows it isn't "in" this assignment.  A comment on patriotism, trails and (natural) waste.</p>
<p> </p>

<p> </p>
<p>bard - funny how nature always seems to find a way; I like it</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Waste...might not have time this weekend to get this one done, but I'll try my best</p>
