  1. THIS is an interesting slice of the blue dumpster pie! I like the splotch, it looks like so many living things – a dandelion seed, a barnacle, Mt. Fugi… Then there are the white dribbles and the rusty bits, the darker blue background scratches, the smears and traces – fun!

    • I was thinking barnacle, too, but hadn’t considered the other options for this feature. This blue dumpster and its adornments kept looking like sky or water to me. Thanks, as always, Lynn, for your comments.

  2. BTW the title of the series, The Dumpsters of Oberlin, is also brilliant – sounds simple but it has such weight, such good associations.

    • Glad you feel the weight of the series title, Lynn. I am serious about these photographs even as I laugh and get a kick out of them.

  4. Thanks, Alastair. I love that you can see them as growth patterns. I suppose they are a variant of the usual craquelure pattern.
