Abstract of rust and bubbling/peeling paint on a dumpster behind a store in Dunnellon, Florida. There is an actual hole in the metal, and the white thing is an item inside the bin. First I thought this looked like an eye, but the more I looked at it, the more I thought it was a mouth. Then I thought of “Mash” and Hot Lips….

Having lived most of my life in the northeast U.S., I am enjoying retired life in sunny Florida. I enjoy photographing many different kinds of things, but especially flowers and animals, including the beautiful birds found here in Florida. I am currently using a Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D camera, a Canon 55-250 mm telescopic zoom lens, and a Sony P10 Cyber-shot digital camera. My newest acquisition is a Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, a point and shoot which I will be carrying in my purse.
