dumpster diving for triptychs


so yesterday found me and my bloggy friend Holster knee deep in his neighbors dumpster. Shawn had already scavenged around the perimeter earlier in the week and discovered some potential there so it was up to yours truly to get in there and dig out the guts. Always wear boots and gloves when dumpster diving. ok sometimes you don't have those on ya so go with what you got. anyway our anonymous photographer seemed to like to go out and photograph cars. and alot of these negs were cut in threes. soooooo....triptychs it is.
check further posts when i may break out the scissors and then . . . . .diptychs!
which brings up the old idea of a halloween costume...strap two pieces of art to your chest and go as a Total Diptych.

technical/artistic addendum: if you look close you can get a glimpse of our photographer in the side mirror of his car. and yes i did some iDodging and iBurning to get him to come out a bit in those mirrors.

I wonder if those photos are from someone who just died or something. They could be photos the family didn't want etc. Great finds!

Nobody died.
The old guy got an apartment or a condo or something and is selling the house.

wondering why you and Mr. Durden would need costumes. heh

Not only has no-one died, they're still driving around the neighborhood. Very slowly...
