Ellipsis Monday Photo Shoot #109: Garbage Day

"I've lived through the garbage, I might as well dine on caviar."

~Beverly Sills

Into each life, a GARBAGE DAY must come. At the moment, my GARBAGE DAY is Thursday, and it consists of rolling my receptacle down a long private driveway. But that's my experience, now I want to see yours! Big cans. Little cans. Duck shaped cans, that open their beaks when something needs to be discarded. Big industrial cans. Teeny tiny waste baskets... it's all good. So show me already! Don't be afraid to get artistic. Think outside the box. Have fun. Look at GARBAGE DAY in a new way, through your camera's lens!

Extra Credit: Sometimes we see odd items that have been discarded somewhere other then a proper garbage receptacle. Tell us, in a couple paragraphs, about the strangest thing you have ever seen or found after it had been thrown away.

Guidelines for Assignment Submission...

1.The EMPS closes each week at 9:00 PM (ET). No submissions will be accepted after that time.

2. Submit your entry by getting your photo, uploading it to you blog or website, and then comeback here and leave me your link in the comment thread. PLEASE REMEMBER... THE LINK YOU LEAVE MUST GO BACK TO AN ENTRY WHICH IS SPECIFIC TO THIS WEEK'S ASSIGNMENT! A general link to your site will not do and will not be added to the list of those participating the following Monday. HYPERLINKS ARE NOT ACCEPTED!

3. Please be sure to provide a link back to the assignment in your submission, so your readers can find the assignment and join us. Everyone is welcome to play along!

4. Please keep in mind that the image you submit for the EMPS assignment, must be your own original photography. NO LIFTING!

Please Note: I have set aside two days during the week for visiting your submissions. Thursday and Sunday, so look for me then!
