No more pretty landscapes!

At least for today. I do feel that it's my responsibility to show you everything about life in Sharon, including the more practical side, even if it's not very pretty. I've been meaning to post a picture of the transfer station (aka the dump) for months but usually my husband goes so I haven't had a chance to take pictures there. However after my flurry of yard work and housecleaning this weekend I took the opportunity to go myself, and snap this shot (nobody seemed too happy that I had my camera out!) It's in Lakeville, but serves Sharon too. It will close sometime soon, when a site can be found for a new one, as the owner of the land, Hotchkiss school, wants it back.

So you do have some modern ugliness as well. Well, now, that somehow makes me feel better; I'm just a little less envious now.

Hi Jenny, Seems a funny photograph for me to let you know I have enjoyed looking at your lovely autumn color photos. I still have no hope of getting broadband so I sit here for over 15 minutes waiting for the images to load, but it is worth it.

It is also good to see this image, daily life takes in all aspect including waste disposal!

Thanks for visiting Réal DP and it is always nice to see you there.

Wilf, my goodness I am so flattered that you'd wait 15 minutes to see one of my photos- I better make them extra good to reward that kind of effort!

Well, pretty and ugly are entirely subjective, anyway. Maybe someone out there finds dumps beautiful -- in which case they'll be especially taken with yours!

Excuse me for being just a little over-sensitive on seeing the 'anon' experiment, but never mind!
I see this as one of the myirad possibilities of getting a snapshot of simple, necessary everyday American life. in other words, not the kind of picture we will usually come across. that makes it interesting, even compelling for me. I like to see life from every angle and I think you should develop this theme. I mean, you kind of already, but this is a real detail, perhaps enhanced by the guy, who maybe wouldn't choose to be beamed around the world throwing his garbage out. If you see him again, give him a thank-you for this lesson. It gives me a theme idea too: everyday folks being everyday folks...Hmmm
