Challenge 98 - Trashy Pictures (Hosted by Cindy Diaz)

Trashy Pictures

The theme for this challenge is Trashy Pictures.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to seek out and capture that which the human race on this planet discards. In short, go find some trash, litter, or abandoned objects.

These items are of course, easy enough to find. Some of us may not have to look any farther than our desktop or car floorboards J. But the trick is to do this in a meaningful way. Challenge yourselves to take something normally considered unsightly and render it beautiful, interesting, or intriguing to the viewer. Or document the human condition through exploration of our throw-a-ways! Make a social statement, explore a culture, highlight the repulsive, the environmental damage, the poisoning of our world, find some humor - in short - create some art!

I would consider anything that is discarded, whether intentionally, carelessly or accidentally as eligible for this gallery. That includes lost items clearly out of place � like the baby binky in the crosswalk; properly disposed of items � such as a recycling plant or wrecking yard, historical abandoned or discarded property that is now protected archaeological artifacts, and of course your average street litter. You must find these objects, not create them or setup the scene.

Have fun
