    Default October 2010 Photography assignment - What's in yr scrap bin/waste basket/junk drawer

    'What is in your scrap bin' influenced by http://www.photography.ca/Forums/f22...html#post82815 I think it would be great to see how creative people can get with stuff that most of us would discard. I know it's early for the suggestion, but this idea seems just to good to forget.

    I was about to remind you that it's only September 15th but then I saw your wonderful suggestion and agree that it sounds too good to forget.

    It's an early idea, but i like it!

    What is in your scrap bin
    Wow, that would be a hard and BIG decision to make ;-)))). Very nice idea.

    we're much closer to october now! gasp. obviously the trees turning fall colors is a classic theme. But how about pairing that with another subject - man made or natural?

    Problem with a fall colour theme is the form is international some places it is spring.

    Can I modify the idea a bit?
    How about doing a What's in your waste basket? ie... recycled, junk, leftovers, garbage, type theme?
    Just a thought.....

    In honor of Greg I opened up my junk drawer. Here is a look of what's in there



    So then I took out the box with the offering envelops, the eraser, the staple remover and the tweezers. The tweezers are used to give the offering envelopes a bit of a tilt, and the staple remover and the eraser became a symbolic thing: fangs and the monolith .... so here is

    My (first) Offering



    Did not think that a staple remover and an eraser would make such a ferocious sight:

    In the Fangs



    Pulled out the magnifying glass, the stone - already had the staple remover. The latter became some sort of holder for the magnifying glass, and behind it was the stone. With a little light it became

    An orbiting moon, perhaps?



    With the stone still behind the magnifying glass, I noticed that this old scratched magnifier actually acted somewhat like a mirror. I do like reflections, but this is just not good:
