Linda Grashoff's Photography Adventures

Sculpture As Storage Tank 1


May 9, 2014

Janet and I had heard people can visit the Sarasota Landfill, that in fact it offers good birding. Where there is good birding, there are usually good natural things to photograph, often some sort of water feature. So in February we went. We were disappointed to find that cars have to keep to a narrow roadway lined with chain-link fencing that prevents visitors from exploring the natural areas. I loved the colors of the grasses in the area—and a few were unfenced—but all the ponds or reservoirs were uglied-up with fence whose links were too small to accommodate my camera lens. And my photographs of the grasses were a bust. However—this storage tank (I don’t want to know what’s in it) presented itself as an interesting sculptural object with nice surface design on the concrete. So I was happy after all. (I do like tanks.)
