Garage Sales


A good — no make that great — place to look for images that fit into the Picture A Day project are garage sales. Not only can you find interesting pictures of people looking for their next treasure among the leftover piles of other people’s junk, but sometimes you can even find unintentionally humorous still life images that are just sort of piled up by their owners. I don’t know about you, but I find this composition a little disturbing. The sellers of these dolls were willing to trade them to me for some old, out dated technology. But, somehow I couldn’t make myself do it. Maybe no photography is worth the strangeness that these dolls brought to my mind. But, maybe that’s just me. Maybe some other person would have no problem giving these little lumps of plastic to their children.

A word about composition. I didn’t do anything to enhance this picture. I photographed these dolls as I found them. For those more technically inclined, I used a Nikon D90 and a 60mm macro lens.
