Body of Water

Stinky, pee soaked, grease trapΒ alley behind our office. Downtown Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Bruce: That looks like a body.
Me: What looks like a body?
Bruce: The water up there.
Me: Oh! You mean that body of water?
Both of us look at each other: Hahahahahaha!

    • Hi Harry, Lots of urinating happens in the alley by people and dogs. It gets pretty rank between pee and grease traps.

  1. Ha! Funny exchange, Tim. Seriously, I love this shot, even though I’m not completely sure why I like it so much. I guess it’s an example of “the whole being greater than the sum of its parts.” I love the reflection, and that I can’t see it elsewhere in the picture. I like the colors. And the odd-seeming occurrence of skid-marks leading into the puddle. It’s Twilight Zone-ish but brighter, happier. Hugs, and happy caturday to the kitties.

    • Thanks, Teagan. Great analysis of the photo. I was careful to get an angle where the skidmarks were radiating at their best. I thought about having Bruce stand at the end of the puddle, but decided to leave it as a found puddle with no one around.

      • πŸ™‚ I’m sure Bruce would have been a great model, but I like the photo as it is. Adding a person would have diverted attention from the puddle and reflection. It’s more mysterious without people or animals.
