Photo Hunt: Plastic

It was easy for me to decide on one of my plastic photographs because my old photographic collections are housed in plastic envelopes which are housed in plastic boxes. Below is a top view of one of the plastic boxes filled with plastic envelopes full of photographs, and some of the posed photo ops may have a few plastic smiles plastered on for formal events.
Next is a combination shot with a stack of my plastic photo boxes and an old advertisement for plastic from a 1960s magazine. I found that I have a few old magazines and newspapers which I stuck in my photographic boxes. When I pulled an old magazine out, I saw the plastic ad and it seemed like fate. The shot below was taken at the garden center and the plastic mannequin and crocs seemed a bit unseasonable for an autumn display but worked for a colorful plastic shot.
The last one is an after thought. I was at my neighborhood lake/park this morning and the recycling container was brimming over with plastic bottles.
I'll look forward to seeing what everyone else has done with this theme. To Find out how to participate in photohunt you can go here.

Note - some people start posting Friday but Saturday is the official photohunt day and there are often some who post later.

Katya said...

Oh, I love ALL of your pictures! They are all excellent for the theme! I am especially fond of the Crocs picture, as I love my crocs! And they do make winter models now..

The barrel of plastic bottles could be my own after a week. Golly, I drink my water ala Brita, but the kids...they prefer "bottled"!

BlurMommy said...

I love the colorful Crocs too. Did you know that they have Crocs boots for winter? I just learned that this week. :)

hana said...

Carver, I wanted to tell you that your post on the reflectolion blog award really touched me! I still think about the blogs I visited via your award! Blogs that are now left untouched since the blogger has passed! It really touched me!

Carver said...

Thanks to the photohunters for stopping by. SabineM, I do have a pair of crocs I got as a stocking stuffer christmas gift. I do wear them sometimes. I appreciate your comments about my reflection post and the fact that you visited the blog.

Here in south Florida, the unseasonable display for fall would work year-round! =) I think I like that photo the best - very colorful. Blessings on your weekend.

Great plastic shots Carver. I loved all your different takes on this theme.

Jose said...

Great choices, plastic is all around us, let's hope people recycles it more as it takes forever to desintegrate.

TorAa said...

Hi, you got the whole idea by these excellent photos.

Plastic, for me, is everything from dirt or vaste to art.

that's great entry!

happy weekend

Liz said...

What a wonderful collection of different plastic items.

YTSL said...

Am seeing quite a bit of recycling themed things in this Photo Hunt. Seems like we're quite the environmentally-friendly lot! :)

A. said...

Great shots there! I love the colourful but unseasonal one!

That's the trouble with recycling bins. They are often not emptied as often as they should be - not very encouraging.

Ju said...

wonderful set of plastic shots!

kim said...

You did a great job with this theme too! I love the blue tan on the mannequin. Holy Moley! Even I never turned THAT color in the sun. :)
I love to see where a theme takes you...
Love, K.

Instant Karma's gonna get you,
Gonna knock you off your feet,
Better recognize your brothers,
Ev'ryone you meet,
Why in the world are we here,
Surely not to live in pain and fear,
Why on earth are you there,
When you're ev'rywhere,
Come and get your share.

Well we all shine on,
Like the moon and the stars and the sun,
Well we all shine on,
Ev'ryone come on.

-John Lennon and the Plastic Ono Band

Mark said...

Hi Carver,
I am a bit worried about that lady, blue legs and arms clash so much with the green body...

RUTH said...

makes you realise just how handy and versitile plastic is :o)

Carver said...

Thanks to all the photohunters for visiting and Kim I can't believe you. How perfect to come up with a song from the John Lennon and the Plastic Ono Band. Cool!

Dragonheart said...

Great collection of plastic photos! :) Look at all those plastic bottles. Here in Munich, there is a deposit on all plastic bottles, so most people bring them back to the store to be recycled, so that they can get their money back!

My plastic Photo Hunt.

Dorid said...

wow, looks like they have to empty that recycling bin more often! Good to see that people are taking recycling seriously!

JC said...

Great shots! It's autumn already? Time sure does fly...

Carlota said...

This is a great photos for this week theme. seems like we can't live without plastic.

Happy weekend.

Lori V. said...

Great choices... the Crocs shot was very colorful (although I personally think Crocs are the single ugliest piece of fashion we have ever produced... a huge waste of crude oil), and I love the recycling bin.

Mine's up...come visit! :-)

TopVeg said...

Great range of photos - I love those plastic folders - so good for everything!
You made me feel guilty about not mentioning recycling - your photo of bottles sums it up!
Good to see you blog again

Crooked Eyebrow said...

Look at all those bottles ready to be recycled! How nice!
