Colorful Recycling Containers for Trash

Every community, every society has their own waste. What one group of people throw away, another might save as a resource.

I remember a time when we had one large trash can, and everything went into it. If you had a large amount of yard waste, you’d have to save it, and slowly put it into the trash can each week until it was gone.

With this week’s challenge, you could seek to tell a story, with the capture of waste. Or, you might highlight the entropy already captured within the waste. Or you could do something completely different. This one actually gives you a lot of room, I think.

Trash, What Is America Coming To?

Please don’t forget that we like to share our work with each other, primarily on Flickr, Facebook, and Google+. Also, I’d like to remind everyone that we’re hoping for each person to submit just one photo, per week. Maybe that means you’ll have to make the hard choice and select the best shot, of your own.

About Steve Troletti

I'm a Location Scout, Editorial, Nature, Wildlife and Environmental Photographer based in Malibu, California. I specialize in Nature and Urban Nature photography including Infrared Landscapes. The Bulk of my work takes place in the Los Angeles, California area, Greater Montreal Region, Canada, Switzerland, France and Varese in Northern Italy. Ethical wildlife photography is the main priority and focus of my work. A minimum disturbance of the animals, their habitat and the environment is my top priority. This applies as much to total wilderness areas as it does to urban nature environments. Ongoing education of environmental issues and building awareness for the protection of wildlife and wilderness areas around the world is what drives me to document the beauty that surrounds us.
