Great angle! It adds a lot you caught the man in the shot too, of course!
Bob Floyd30-Jun-2006 14:49
It would appear you have a bit of it. Interesting how difference communities deal with it though. Love the angle on this shot as it adds a bit more interest to an already fascinating scene. Well done.

Hi Kent, this is certainly a decent amount of trash, but you could have really done us proud and found some piles where the bags had been picked through and all the stuff scattered around :-) Sandy

The funny thing is this is normal garbage in NYC, not nearly the biggest pile. I was not looking to take my "garbage shot" at the time, but found the placement of the man on the phone to be funny :) Unfortunately, he did not stick around for a second shot, so I ended up with crummy camera settings. I liked it enough to post it anyway :)

Piles of neatly piled garbage. But, it is piles and piles of it!!!! My goodness! Hope someone hauls it off before it really starts smelling bad! V

I can't even imagine how much garbage is put out curbside in NYC! I can't even imagine it from one of the tall buildings. I like the orientation of the picture.
