Springtime is our windy season here in the desert. But it's been fairly windy already, while it's still wintertime. On several of these windy days, I've driven past our local dump en route to one of the schools where I do my weekday pickups and I've felt inspired by what I saw.
On calm days, the fence that surrounds the dump looks like a normal fence. But on the windy days, the fence becomes a canvas ready to catch the colors of the wind. I know it's just trash and stuff people probably should have recycled, but something funny happens in my mind when I see that fence come alive like that.
It makes me smile.
I've told myself over and over that I need to go take a picture of that some time.
Well, yesterday, as I dropped Z off for football practice (also near the dump), the wind was picking up and once again was this beautiful giant canvas, painted by the wind. All I had was my iPhone, but instead of passing it by yet again, I seized the moment, drove up the dirt road that goes behind the dump and got a few pictures.
Beauty in trash, thanks to the wind...
