photoblog image Tyres-Gorton Dump.

Tyres-Gorton Dump.

Actually came here to snap the piles of furniture that have been fly tipped over Christmas...DFS has a lot to answer for. Too many shaven headed men in old transits about so tippy toe over the fence to get this lot. History brush and levels and then  cyan/blue reduced in the hue / sat layer.

excellent processing David,love that splash of colour amongst those black tyressmile
David Johnson: Taking the cyan and blue levels down gave this the right amount of 'pop' in the other colours.

Iwouldn't be there ... It should be stinking !!! Funny composition ...
I shan't get tire(d) of this image Dave... Apart from everything positive about it it reminds us that it is a none too pleasant legacy to leave for future generations. But do the white van drivers really care? ...richard.
David Johnson: You'd think that China would be hoovering this sort of stuff up and chucking it into Power Stations or making highly dangerous toys for the American market out of these. There must be a genius who could create an ethical power plant run on this stuff....surely?

I wonder as a novice, how many people would walk past this and not see a shot. Love this sort of thing. making something nice out of what most people would see as a tip. great work
David Johnson: saw this ages ago and stored it in the old memory locker,a very useful place if you are out and about without a camera.I really should have someone with me when i'm snapping stuff like this photographing the people staring at me in befuddled disbelief,

You have remarkably photogenic dumps in the UK. I am impressed.
David Johnson: We have a crack force of Eastern europeans who, every night, titivate our dumps to comply with EEC regulations, now thats the truth...honest....

A silk purse out of a sows ear David. Great shot. We have a DFS in Droitwich. Never found a comfortable chair in there. These tyres would be more comfortable and probably last longer!
David Johnson: Bet there are loads of Apes out there wishing Santa had brought them a tyre on a bit of rope hanging from a tree...this would have made a forest of them very happy...

A shot after my own heart - love the touch of pink. I'm always amazed at how I find this kind of image so much more interesting and satisfying than a pretty sunset!

David Johnson: Ah sunsets, have fouind myself trying to get a bit of foreground rubbish in when I see a good one, think I'm beyond therapy
I love the way this photograph sort of reads upwards. The gorgeous colours of the leaves, through to the tangle of tyres, right up to the greyness of the sky. Love the green hut peeking over the top, too. (:o)
David Johnson: Cheers Ros, top hole critique, better than that bunch on Channel 4 last night, had to turn it off as I was reaching for the telly brick...will probably watch it again next week though.

All that processing to make an interesting image. the reds at the bottom make the image even better. Well seen David.
David Johnson: Maybe its time I turned my attention to fluffy kittens!!! No..who am I kidding, bring on the next pile of crap to capture.

David Johnson: Thanks Lilith, crap can be nice!
