Port-o-Potties are gross. I am sure each of you has some funny / horrifying story about using one. So it probably wouldn’t strike you as a great subject for a photo. It’s odd. Welcome to my third theme week. I had intended on doing these once a month, but the reaction has been so positive I decided to do them whenever I come up with material. I dug into my picture archives to come up with odd pictures. These are more “artistic” than most of my pictures and often more edited and I am interested in hearing what you think.
This picture was taken on a wonderful trip to Galveston, Texas. While walking along the sea wall, I was enjoying the sun and bright blue sky and noticed these bright yellow port-o-potties. The colors really struck me and along with the fact that there was no traffic going by I thought it would be a good moment for a picture. I can’t really say what drew my eye to them, perhaps the yellow color. Something I wouldn’t expect as they are normally blue. But I am glad I took this picture.
This was a quick snapshot with my iPhone. I increased the saturation in Lightroom. I think works in this picture by increasing the absurdness of it. Yet in the end, I really like it! Enjoy oddities week!
