Thematic Photographic 72 - Junk
Another form of junk
London, ON, October 2009 [Click to enlarge]
I've chosen this week's Thematic Photographic theme, junk, because I find myself tossing lots of it these days. Whether it's the stuff you haul to the curb, the stuff between your ears or a strange combination of the two, we all probably carry around more than we'd like, and we'd all do well to lighten our load.
As evidenced by this photo, junk can also be eaten. Are peanut M&Ms necessarily junk food? I don't believe so. But lose the sense of balance - i.e. eat them for breakfast, lunch and supper to the exclusion of everything else - and you'll be well on your way to achieving your own junk definition.
Still, as my wife chatted by phone with my mom and tried to explain to her that her son was at it again with his camera, I realized that we can either treat our junk with disdain or look for the opportunity to have some fun with it. On this day, I chose the latter, and as you choose your own interpretations of junk, I hope you do the same.
