Thematic Photographic 245 - Messiness

After the game is played
London, ON
January 2012
The world isn't always the neatest place. Folks drop stuff in places they shouldn't. Dirt gets into places we wish it wouldn't. The usual rules of neatness seem to be ignored in the process.

Sometimes, like when you're building or renovating something, it can't be helped. Other times, like this scene at the end of a hard fought hockey game at a usually spotless facility, it's another story.

My daughter scrunched her nose when she saw this, and wondered aloud why folks can't be a little more careful about the stuff they leave behind. I didn't have a real answer for her then, and I still don't.

Your turn: Take a picture that evokes the "messiness" theme and post it to your blog or website (or Facebook, or Twitter, or wherever else you like to share stuff.) Leave a comment here letting folks know where to find it. Visit other participants to spread the photographic joy. Pop by again throughout the week, as we encourage repeat photographic sharing.

Hmmm, I work in a junior high school. I wonder if I'll be able to get some "messy" pictures tomorrow?
I like this theme.

Even nature leaves a mess.

I just want to put in a plug for the occasional positive view of messiness.
