You see, I have started walking around with a camera in my hand as if it's a part of my body, like a fixture to a house. So while I was aiming for the perfect shot, it didn't take long for my blog post to start getting more juice. Mr. Wonderful showed up in his boots and started a conversation "Beautiful day…are you a part of this party too?....What do you like about these garbage cans? ... Hey, what are you really doing?” I was terribly distracted by the john deere boots he had on, they had a very unique design. I wanted to ask him if he blog to introduce him to my blog where he might be featured, but our conversation was cut short because Miss Trinity needed rescuing from being overly brave on the play structure. Now, he would just have to be lucky to run into this post one day.
I guess everyone was right-on, once you’re a blogger, you can't go anywhere, see anything without once thinking about a picture, a story, or how to incorporate your conversations into a blog post. The blinking light bulb goes off every now and then when something sparks. Like many photographers, I was perfectly happy to discover the additional subject, as it makes more of a story for my post. Argh...there I go again, but you know what, I am only thinking of your reading pleasure.
My reason to have taken these photographs is the admiration I have for our community's efforts for bringing arts, creativity, and color into something we wouldn't normally have looked twice at. And I was very happy to see a group of volunteers working on beautifying the garbage cans in our own neighborhood park last weekend! Garbage Can Arts in Parks!
