The Storm No. 4 - Last Warning

A few raindrops fall, the storm’s last warning to take cover.  


Exxon Station, across from Confederate Cemetery, Jonesboro, Georgia

Original Dumpster color: Grayish-Blue

While delivering some work to a gallery in Jonesboro, I took the opportunity to seek out some new dumpsters.  I spotted this beauty off of Main Street at an Exxon station. I was photographing away when a gentleman started asking me what I was doing - he was curious given that he was the Code Enforcement officer for Jonesboro, GA.  Normally I don’t like to chat while I’m taking photos, but Darry was genuinely interested in what it was I was doing. We ended up chatting for about thirty minutes. We chatted about everything from the history of Jonesboro to race relations to the movie being filmed next door (Dumplin’).  Before I met Darry, I was so busy photographing this dumpster that I hadn’t even noticed the confederate cemetery across the street - until he pointed it out to me. I’m not sure we would have ever met had it not been for that dumpster. It is a conversation I will never forget, a candid, honest, and real conversation about race relations in the south.  This image did not require much editing, aside from bringing out a bit more blue and editing out a few minor blemishes. Like the storm these images represent, I find some evoke strong emotions. This is one of my favorite images, in part because of the image itself - but perhaps more so due to the circumstances and person I met while photographing this particular dumpster.
