19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Bin Beauty

During lockdown walks in the local area, I began to look for inspiration for photography in unusual places. I started noticing deteriorating labels and posters on public litter bins that had interesting colours and textures. I realised that this particular bin had lichen growing on the remains of a label, and it fascinated me.
