Thanks to everyone that took the time to vote and comment.

Another shot that I was waiting for the right challenge to shoot this spot. I drive by it quite often and always thought the blue stairs contrasting with the yellow wall contrasting with the purple dumpster was really interesting.

Had to take it on a Sunday when the business that this dumpster belonged to was closed. I wish the dumpster wasn't locked, otherwise I probably would've been in it with my legs sticking out of the top...I think that would've really been interesting.

I will say, the scene definitely is clean for a "garbage" challenge but technically, there is some garbage in the yellow bag sitting on top of the dumpster. :)

Startling precision and symmetry and harmony for so anarchic a subject.

good composition, especially with the shadow of the stairs.

A reserved seat to review the world's garbage.

A celebration of shapes and textures and colors. Appropriately titled.

Musical theme is impossible to ignore. Staves and scales, in shape, light and tones. I can't resist seeing a set of headphones on the conductor. Thank you.

Looks totally clean to me. I like it. But, it's clean.

No garbage. Graffiti?! Yes. Garbage? No.

I'm sorry.

Do I like it?

Yep. I do.

I like the pinks in the graffiti... and the newspaper guy.

Yeah. I do.
