Dirty Stuff

Post by minniev » Tue Apr 17, 2018 5:32 pm

I participate in a 52 project on another site, and this week's assignment was "messy". I can't get out to do much photography right now so snapped a shot of some dishes I literally dug up behind an old cabin on the farm. Worked on it with a bit of processing and texture, just to get the assignment done. Surprisingly it was the most well-liked shot I've posted there, so I thought I'd share it here. Goes to show, you don't always know what others will find interesting.

I'll wash up the dishes when I have time, and see what they are. They do look interesting. The blue and white ones on the edge were in the cabin, so apparently were used when it was last inhabited around 1980. But the others were actually buried. We found edges sticking out of the dirt and went from there.

Wow!

Besides giving me a flashback to my younger bachelor days, I think this shot is great, great, great. I might have to go back to my old ways if I can get a shot like this in 10 years.

Why wash them? If you don't need them, leave as is for future photos. This could be a magnificent series; let your imagination run wild. Some near a window, some on a table with an open door behind, some with table, chairs, bench, a hat on a chair, etc, etc. Show us. Matt

Glad you like, Piet.

Well, I actually dug them up a couple of months back, and then one of the contractors ran into some more of them nearby and added them to the group. I was feeling guilty about not having cleaned them up yet. I likely won't be able to resist washing them but I may play first. I have ALL the props: an old shack, an old rusted metal kitchen table, a couple of broken chairs, the dishes....

Leave them as they are and make them a part of the museum! S-

I think the picture is spectacular! I love the light, love the colors, love the grunge--- I see why it's popular, it's great! :yay:

(I prefer to present pictures in albums because I can put them in specific order.)

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|
