[broken down compost bin]

lately i've had a bit of photographers block.. i'm mostly a recluse and everyday i go outside with my camera and it seems i've photographed everything around me umpteen times.. so i thought to myself, look around, look deeper, look closer.. i'm sure there's plenty of things i overlook and have become complacent with.. so my newest personal project - is to photograph the mundane and see what i can do with it.. see if i can find inspiration in the everyday stuff..

this is an old compost bin.. it's on the neighbours property, which borders ours.. it hasn't been used in over a year.. it's broken and old.. and i never really stopped to notice it before, till today..

nothing left inside it after all this time.. even the old egg shells have been eaten by critters.. scratch marks and moss on the inside..

Good thinking and seeing on your part. Sometimes I get that block also . And I am living in a city, but than nothing seems worth photographing

thanks.. sometimes we need to look at things thru someone elses eyes.. i'm so far from a city that i would welcome an urban setting to make me look thru the camera differently.. i never photograph buildings & structures & people.. [i need to].. :)

Sometimes it means that you are growing in your skills and look different to a subject you before would photograph;
