    Kerbside Creative Collection!

    Last weekend, I commenced a project that I had had floating around in my mind.
    I collaborated with Allan and Clubmanmc.

    The ability to laugh at oneself, despite whatever is happening around them, is the true mark of a comedian. This theory very much applied today when we decided to act upon a really silly idea I had a few weeks ago, while driving past many piles of peoples' junk they're throwing out.

    Hit up the suburbs on the list for the weekend, they're all in the generally-same area, so that wasn't too hard. Drive by. Look. Observe. Thinking caps ON. Go in, get the shots, out quick. The aim was to be as funny/hilarious as possible, making something out of these peoples junk. Setup a scene if possible, else, do something in it....It wasn't about photographic technical brilliance. (and this is the reason why I post it here)

    These are the results of that project:

    But as a general image teaser for you:

    That is absolutely brilliant!
    The fact that you got Allan and Michael involved I was half expecting the style of images you got. They certainly are a pair!

    What a fun day out!
    All my photos are taken with recycled pixels.
    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom, is knowing not to serve it in a fruit salad.

    fun photos, but technically not that good - too out of focus with massive white balance shifts.

    I must say that is a brialliant idea and the photos are even better! Really well done. Love the poses for each of the photos for the respective pieces of garbage.

    thanks everyone!
    I know the technicality is really down, but I had so much fun doing it, it really doesn't matter that much to me if they weren't spot on

    Mel, Allan and Michael, this is brilliant, a very creative vision and imagination. You should make a photobook of it. If you do it on Blurb it can go in their shop - who knows, you might sell some!

    Haha! That's just brilliant! ... and you do have to wonder about those "Evidence, Do Not Touch" flags
