This is from another foray to my local waste management, to The Boneyard (as they call it) where all the old dumpsters/skips are stacked. I thought this was a fascinating paint detail on one of them. Love love love the red blobs of texture and the swirling movement of the white “whatever it is”! Shot on Nikon D90 on tripod, with Nikon 60mm macro at 3". No color saturation. Looks great in larger view.

I love macro abstract work of rejected and neglected items in our society, especially rusty old dumpsters (skips) around the back of buildings, battered boats up on dry dock, rotting wood, bark of trees, and so on. Im fascinated by the color and texture that appears with a macro lens. I do almost no post-processing after taking the shot.
