Thematic Photographic #301 - Dirty

Carmi's challenge this week is something I find happens a lot during the summer.  Like on visits to the beach (as his photo depicts) or gardening, and mowing, or just simply chasing rain showers, dirty becomes what we are.


Normally I don't search for photos like this one from last Saturday night at the parade, but I'm happy I caught it now.

Once the horses join the parade, the pooper scoopers are quick to arrive by their trusty Golf Carts.  Did you notice the Lakeville RED snow shovel for horsey poop? 

I shot this last fall (a whole series) and I've been saving them on my phone to use for that perfect something.  I claim Dirty as just the right place for it!

So pull up your rugs, check your trunk, look in the sink or the tub or the pool and snap something "dirty" and bring it here.

Love the pooper-scooper shot. What a job.

When horse traffic was usual, people would run out after a horse had pooped, to get the result for their gardens! I'm told roses really benefitted from it!

Bob Scotney said...

People in our village, myself included, still claen up after the horses. As Gilly says ideal for roses.

Ha - nice shots! Gilly's comment made me smile - my daughter rode horses all through her childhood and teenage years, and people would often race out to scoop some poop from the roadside for their gardens.

I got so behind, I didn't realize you had two! dirty posts up.

Where the horse trail is in Ashburn Va., there are no pooper scoopers. Mother Nature eventually takes care of it.
