For me, this is a "juicy" theme for the month, because there's so much trash, ruin, and decay around ... And if you look closely, you'll see some wonderful textures and character in that old junk.
These are some pictures from a walk in my Dad's woods. It's an old junk pile, back when people had their own trash piles on their land ... This barrell is looking very good for future rust-dyes.
The theme got me thinking of Grappa and Gramma Smitmajer's first date more than 60 years ago ... Grappa took her to the town dump so Grappa could shoot rats. He was a "manly man" in those days. Isn't that romantic? Sheesh!
Here's a picture of Grappa's Bus when they were getting ready for the farm auction :
As further inspiration for this trash and ruined theme, I offer Ransom Brigg's "A Most Peculiar Trip : Searching for Miss Peregrine:"
I just read his novel, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, and finding this video was kind of a eureka moment. It fit in so nicely with the theme. Enjoy!
