Inspiration – trash is the challenge for DogwoodWeek12. This is a really wide open category, starting with a simple inspiration. Use this inspiration as creatively as you can. There are no rules so feel free to think outside of the box or rubbish bin. As we do every week, we all had some ideas to toss around before we settled on out actual photo.
The first thing that comes to mind for us this time of year is all the snow trash. Items buried and frozen under the white stuff for months is now exposed again. Our first idea for the challenge was this rusted out metal can that recently appeared from under huge snow piles. It’s trash, it tells a story, but we find it rather boring.
Bailie loves trash cans because there are so many good smells in them. Her idea was to take a photo of her with the garbage can along a walking trail. Mom says it is technically not trash, but the place to put trash, so this idea is out the window.
Finally higher powers provided us with the answer, a plastic bottle. This thing ended up in our yard, and I love how it makes crinkle noises. I was dashing around with it, having a blast, but Mom says this photo is too much about me. The water bottle is hardly even noticeable.
The photo we are choosing for the challenge this week is me holding the trash, aka bottle. The bottle is front and center, and even the condensation inside is visible. We are captioning it, “One man’s trash is a hounds treasure.” What do you think of our photos, did we meet the challenge?
