Carton Muncher ,Flickr wander, Sunday.

One from Sundays toddle into the outlands of Manchester. Asda Car park opposite Sport City. Sven comes here on Matchday in his Popemobile to get Egg and Cress sammys and a couple of Jaffas for half time.. Nancy has a part time job in George putting Jeans on the wrong size hangers.

That's a sheer beauty, Dave. I was staring at my screen for good 3 minutes, enjoying every inch of it.

David Johnson: KNocked off the sharpening in RAW and did some selective sharpening in Pshop, as for the mesmeric qualities I have planted a subliminal message in this involving Rugby and Saturday, every time you hear the phrase'The ball comes back to Wilkinson,he's in front of the posts...." you will find yourself involuntarily leaping into the air....its true.....

Lovely find. It is hard to resist such a toothsome smile!
David Johnson: Think that moustache could do with a bit of topiary.
Just amazing.
David Johnson: See the mundane cam become something else, just don't forget to look twice.
You amde it look so freaking beautiful.
David Johnson: Its my deep affinity with all things urban and grungy, it was just waiting for me, fate and flickr threw us together
I love this intense orange and rusty texture. So harpened details. Amazing graphic picture. Seems like it's going to talk !
David Johnson: Didn't sharpen at all in RAW and did some selective sharpening in Pshop, more likely this is about to belch!!!!

Excellent, well spotted!
And how was the UK Flicker-meet? Was it well attended?
David Johnson: Well being the token Grandad was a bad start but about 30 to start with and then maybe 60 as the day wore on, Paul-Tadpole came along and it was nice to meet up, so he got the grand tour around Beswick, Miles Platting and Ancoats. plus a good dose of my man flu!

WOW Georgeous stunning beautiful amazing, I wish I'd taken this!
David Johnson: Easy now with all that, I'd be thinking you'd upped your dosage. See 'Skip Art' there's a whole new genre out there, but first I need to purge myself of this night time stuff....see tomorrow.
Wicked colour, and love the texture of the burnt paint. Really striking picsmile
David Johnson: We all scratched our heads and wondered why they colour coded this skip orange for cartons and then thought.....'Orange Cartons'! Doh.

i love it..it looks like an animated character. Great spot and nicely done!
David Johnson: Yep Skippy the Skip from Asdaland
Beautiful colours and the image of Nancy working at George has brought a very large smile to my face!
David Johnson: What else has the poor woman to do, that 2 bed apartment in Gorton could never keep a woman occupied full time.....oops.....
amazing I cant still figure out what it is.. fantastic editing
David Johnson: Just a big old recycling skip for collecting drinks cartons...but orange.
I just keep staring at it. The color is great. It is just amazing what you find when you look. Great Shot.
David Johnson: You'll have to read the reply to VZ to understand why you couldn't look away

the SC template makes this look even better. eye-watering colour!
David Johnson: Cheers Mate, you know thats just what I thought of your razor wire!!!
Very nice shot. I like the idea
David Johnson: Thanks, I was lucky enough to stumble onto this.
Envy permeates my mind. richard
David Johnson: I fear this could be the thin end of the wedge, I'm on the lookout for any whispering campaigns.....
Almost a face, but a wierd three-eyed, bug-eyed sort of critter with a shocking complexion.
David Johnson: Must be all those Sunny-D cartons that get shoved in to it daily, you'll find its a medically proven condition..no really.
WOW! A masterclass in `how to make something ugly and mundane, really, really beautiful`. I can`t stop looking at it! (:o)
David Johnson: See reply to VZ and Gail to understand why you can't look away.......
Well seen, well taken, well well!Lov it it Dave
David Johnson: Every night I kneel down in front of my statue of Lady Luck and thank her for letting me live in Manchester........no that really is a fib!

Very striking, I don't know how you see these images, I think I would just walk on by and leave the camera in the bag. Must take it out more.
David Johnson: When I'm cameraless, which is not often I always make a mental note of the bits to do, which is probably why my head always hurts.
Wonderful orange bliss!
David Johnson: OOO ta mister!
