So I had two ideas for this shot, but my other idea, a shot from street level of a fancy garden on the second story of a downtown bar, led to an encounter with a guy who thought maybe I should see the garden from upstairs - that his wife would show me and it was really awesome - um no thank you is there really a wife? As a woman I just don't trust very easily. Plus it was dusk so that added the nervousness. Plus I needed urban landscape and loved the dumpster in the view from street level. Plus I only had my Lensbaby, and since I don't do terribly well interacting with people yet while I'm photographing, I chickened out going back to the cool bar scene later with a regular lense and went with the awesome toilet flower pot shot across the street. You're welcome!
