Thematic Photographic 393 - Dirty

Alone in a downtown alley
London, ON
November 2016
The world is a dirty place. I don't say that negatively, and I don't believe that this needs to be resolved in any way. A little grit under the fingernails can be character-building, after all.

As I walked back to my car through a darkened downtown core a few weeks ago, I found myself thinking about dirt, and how it seemed to define the fabric of this often-maligned place. I think I need to come back here more often.

Your turn: Take a pic that reflects this week's theme - dirty - and post it to your blog, website or other online "spot". Remember, how you interpret the theme is entirely up to you - Leave a comment here letting folks know where to find it, and be sure to visit other participants. Bonus points if you share the #ThematicPhotographic hashtag on social media. Head here for more background on Thematic. And don't forget to have fun with it. Because fun is what this is all about.

Goodness gracious that is dirty! I'm going to put something together, not sure what yet, but I will be back!

I've found plenty of dirt without getting on my litter hobbyhorse.

Been involved in a rather clean environment this week, but remembered this shot from the summer. http://gillymaccsphotos.blogspot.com

Carmi, here we found an ironic twist to dirty.
