trash cans never looked so good

Whoever is in charge of these is clearly is not a "type A" personality. The lids are all mixed up! Shot with the 410 and 25mm 2.8

Well spotted indeed
Serious question, are these kind of trash bins actually in use?
I guess I've not seen something alike over here for ?35yrs.

I could do without the stuff on the left but those trash cans are great.

So with pots, you can put squares into rounds...

I enjoy these type of images, as they are so different.

Nice shot Stewart and I also like the "different" shots, thanks for sharing.

Re: trash cans never looked so good

Thank you, Mrs T!
Falk, yes, these are still common use, tho curbside bins are now plastic. The metal ones last and last and make a great noise when kicked down the street! These were in a back lot of a small botanical garden and so are somewhat preserved from modernization.
Pete, I will correct the lid imbalance on my next visit...
Alf, I agree totally, and had already planned to go back and just get the three cans, proper.
Graham and Banjukes, thank you, I agree, and love discovering the subtle colors and shapes of such common items. Plus, that wall behind, which is nothing more than that, is such a nice backdrop!
