    Default Can garbage be art?

    At the entrance to a local beach park and re-testing my FE lens after repair.

    Well, first off, I like the photo. To answer your question though, I don't know why garbage couldn't be art, since there have been cases where the converse was true.

    That's an interesting shot. I like the way the tree on the left turned out.

    Appreciate what we have, instead of worrying about what we haven't. Enjoy what is, before it isn't.

    The IR effect makes this shot very surreal...

    I've seen where junk was harvested thoughtfully from a junkyard and fashioned into a sculpture where the dings, corrosions, and other blemishes were capitalized upon. Why couldn't a photographer with just as good an eye for possibilities make something out of the unloved, uncared-for things of this world? And Bill rendered them in IR to boot!
