The Storm No. 11 - Fading

As the storm moves on, signs of its presence begin to fade as the sun carefully makes its way out from behind the darkness.

Parking Lot behind Osteria on North Highland Atlanta, GA

Original Dumpster color: Blue-Green

I’m always excited to see renovations in the neighborhood, it means dumpsters are nearby.  This particular renovation was taking place behind one of our favorite dinner joints, Osteria.  I photographed it for the first time in November of 2018. What I loved about this dumpster was the particular color of green, a beautiful blue-green which I had fun playing with in Lightroom.  It had been weathered over time with great grease stains, watermarks, paint stains, and various marks. Sometimes, I don’t know how great the image will turn out until I’m back in the editing room where I can manipulate color and remove some blemishes that may detract from the overall composition.  This particular dumpster had such great raw material to work with that after playing around with it in Lightroom I was ready to go back for more. I was so disappointed when I went back in early April in 2019 to photograph it again, only to find it had been replaced by a newer, cleaner model - which also happened to be far less interesting.  In some ways it is much like the landscape after a storm, it changes - trees fall, sediment moves, and new growth begins.
