Dumpsters in Alley


Before I get to this shot, I wanted to let you know that the lens I just purchased from 42nd Street Photo just came in and it does have the 5 year warranty.  They honored their word and I'm pretty happy about that.  However, I'm not sure I can buy from them again since the products they advertise on their site is not necessarily what they will send.  If you do decide to purchase from them, be sure to talk to a salesman to find out exactly what you are getting before you make the final purchase.  I think I got lucky.  Read my previous posts for more info.

Pretty exciting, eh? Dumpsters. It doesn't get any better than this! This is that shot I mentioned in the my 7th Street Garage post.  It's not super exciting, but there's something about it that I like.  I guess it's the grunginess.

This is another shot that I took in the morning on the way to work.  You know, I only have so much time to get a shot before I get to work and I don't want to get up at an ungodly hour that's worse than what I get up to already.  I really wanted to try to get an alley shot and this wasn't the first.  The other shot that I wanted was pretty cool, but as soon as I had all of me gear setup, the Waste Management truck came in a screwed it all up.  It might have been good if the Waste Management truck was an actual trash truck, but this one was just a regular pickup truck. Nothing interesting there.  So, I went across the street and found this shot.  This actually turned out better I think because the lighting was brighter, but it would be cool to get a trash truck, especially in HDR. Oh well, someday maybe.  I guess I can always dream of trash.  Wait... Nevermind.
