The Storm No. 2 - The Struggle

The sun lights up the clouds from behind highlighting each form to show-off their absolute perfection before retreating behind the overwhelming darkness.

Roger Jordan Garage, Dekalb Avenue Atlanta, Georgia

Original Color: Evergreen

This image was created from a dumpster discovered on Dekalb Avenue in the Roger Jordan parking lot early on a weekend morning before my daughter’s soccer game.  She has to arrive 45 minutes before kick-off which gives me a bit of time to explore the surrounding area. Early mornings are my favorite time to photograph dumpsters because I can usually avoid running into people giving me questioning looks. The pattern on white sticker on the otherwise boring evergreen dumpster caught my eye.  I did a bit of editing in Lightroom to create the, manipulating the color to bring out more yellows and blues and less gray.   I admit that at first I was interested in the brightly colored regular dumpster next to this large, green unsightly dumpster.  Usually the green dumpsters don’t do much for me. I don’t particularly love this shade of green, I don’t tend to find many interesting marks on this color of dumpster with the exception of a good paint splatter.  Thankfully I noticed the large white sticker on the dumpster. It reminds of me of my grandmother’s the lacy doilies my Mom would use to decorate the table for Valentine’s Day. It is amazing to me to find something so delicate looking on such an absolutely ordinary and unimpressive beast of an object.  I haven’t been able to prove it, but I believe a snail is responsible for creating the beautiful lace-like pattern.
