Out of place

Anachronism (noun): an error in chronology; a person or thing that’s chronologically out of place

There is just one item in this picture that is out-of-place – and the reason I haven’t used it yet, well…until now that is 🙂

Do you see it too? Does it bug you as much as it does me?

I’d love to just stick my hand in the picture and remove it.

  1. If it wasn’t for bulldog’s acute observation, I would never have noticed. I suppose I see only what you want me to see. I think the photo is lovely with or without the dustbin but I understand how it might annoy you – the photographer.

  2. My dad loved photography. If I would share photos with him that I had taken, this is the sort of thing he would point out to me. Thanks for the post. It brought up some fond memories of my dad and his encouraging and helpful comments. (of course there were also times when his comments were a bit unwanted) like when I came out wearing a long skirt and he commented “My God, is that what they are wearing these days! You look like you’re dressed for a civil war re-enactment!) 🙂

  3. It’s funny, those are the kind of things I’m always equally wanting to erase and also loving b/c they add a delicious edge of reality. I’m all about acceptance these days so it strikes me as a chance to acknowledge that photos (just like people) are imperfectly perfect.

  6. I’m just starting to notice things when I’m composing a photo and I find myself pulling a weed or repositioning something. That trash can would have made me nuts but your photo is perfect, you did such a great job. Love your photos!

  7. Great photo indeed Hope and I agree. Sometimes you take a great photo but afterwards you see something in it that just doesn’t fit but I still love it. Great shot hon! 😀 *hugs*

  8. It is a beautiful photograph and I failed to notice the trashcan until someone mentioned it. Here is an amateur attempt at fixing the trashcan. I am sure with a little patience and skill which I have neither, it can be fixed better. I never posted a photograph in a comment before, so I don’t know if this will work. Also, you let me know when to go ahead and delete it on my end since it is your picture.

Namaste. My soul honors your soul. I honor the place in you where the entire universe resides. I honor the light, love, truth, beauty & peace within you, because it is also within me. In sharing these things we are united, we are the same, we are one.
