Photo Hunt - Rubbish

The theme for this week's Photo Hunt is garbage. This was an easy one given the thoughtlessness of so many people. This rubbish was photographed in Battis Walk near Romford Station

That photograph says it all! Happy weekend.

Sue said...

I agree with Carver. How thoughtless, and nasty some people are.

Annie said...

It's a cool looking photo. It reminds me of peacock feathers with some garbage stuck on.

Thanks for visiting mine and have a great weekend!

Great shot Jams!
People can be so thoughtless, but somehow garbageshots like yours still is artful to me and have a meaning.

I love this post.
And thank you so much for your respond on my image - it means much to me!

Have a great weekend!

minus the introduction, this photo actually looks interestingly nice... or maybe that's just me and my desensitized eye for garbage... have a great weekend!

Actually it might be rubbish but it is a well composed photo. So something good came out of it.

Happy weekend Jams.

Great photo! Awful subject, but great photo.

See that you translated "garbage" into British English, jams! Re the photo: seems like you turned discarded materials into a photo that's worth more than one glance or even two!

candi said...

Lovely shot, even though it is of garbage. It is sad that in this day and age,some people still choose to throw their trash where they should not.

Happy weekend.

Interesting how the Americans and British came up with different words for the same thing - garbage and rubbish.

LifeRamblings said...

how thoughtless but great angle of the garbage.

Colin Campbell said...

Easy to pick up shots like that.

bing said...

Shoshana said...

That's a lot of rubbish, alright.

SnoopyTheGoon said...

This you call garbage? Come on...

Seriously, some people need killing.

Hootin' Anni said...

Terrific photo...is it done with the 'fish-eye' setting?

This week's theme will be quite interesting to see what everyone came up with for their photos. Yours, my friend, is excellent actually!!! Mine is posted, come on over to my blog, if you can...

Have a great Saturday.

I do not like litterbugs! They are very thoughtless.

It's sad that you are so right. It's not hard to find rubbish. I like the way you have treated the shot.

Looks like a modern art photo ! very nice, not so dull as my rubbish bags !

RJ Flamingo said...

Agreed - and an interesting shot, nonetheless... Mine is a bit more personal, this week.

Tara R. said...

Very interesting perspective on this shot. Litter is such a lazy crime.

feefifoto said...

Such a shame. Sometimes I bring along a plastic bag when I'm walking my dogs and pick up trash and recycling by the side of the road. There's always more.

lissa said...

great pic even if these are trash

srp said...

How disgusting. But we can make a difference when we contribute one little good deed at a time :)

Although "one man's trash is said to be another man's treasure, it just can't be said of all trash.

Marites said...

it's just sad that people can be that and doesn't care. nice take on this week's theme.
