Bunny Dumpster


I'm not entirely clear on what all the spray-paint tagging on the one dumpster means, but at least I can read the word "bunny" on the right. Can anyone tell me what it says on the left?

These were just the outer edge of a large collection of commercial sized dumpsters, apparently being stored on the big lot next to the Solid Wastes of Willits transfer station. They turned out to be fun photo subjects, so I may have to post some more from that excursion. The large structures in the background are part of the Willits Redwood Company mill, across Blosser Lane.

makes for a good picture!

On seeing only the title, I was afraid it would be a dumpster for dead rabbits.
Nice reflection in the puddles.
Walabie, could it be? Or Wanabie Bunny?
Next you'll be dumpster diving in the name of photo blogging.

I have no idea what it says, but I think the bun bun is sort of cute. I hope it's not a symbol of violence or something like that in "Tag" language. I don't think I could ever look at a bun bun the same again.

ONLY YOU, could make a photo of 3 red dumpsters remarkable by catching their reflection in a puddle. Bravo!

Fun image, Elaine. The ordinary that's overlooked by most ...

Petrea said...

I was thinking the same as Virginia. I'm not sure how you manage this, but you took dumpsters and grain elevators and made them grand.

Hmmmm. Don't know the connection, but it does look like, Wasabi. Maybe a Japanese cartoon character??
Good stuff, Elaine, with your eye for finding the "unseen" in front of us everday.

I think it says wasate, but maybe the meant WASTE BUNNY

All I can make out for sure is the WA at the beginning. Maybe Abe can give them calligraphy lessons.

Babzy - That could be!

Magiceye - Thank you.

Dina - You're tempting me. I have a "dumpster diving" photo I could post.

Halcyon - I agree. It's too cute to be a "bad" bunny. 8^)

V - I have an even better reflection shot. Like Dina, you're asking for it...

Chuck - You would have liked the site, full of primary colors and geometric shapes to exploit.

Petrea - And you are all too kind!

Raf - I hadn't thought of the whole comic genre angle. Hmm. Like one of the Pokemon creatures of old.

Heidi - "Waste Bunny" would certainly make sense. I just enlarged the image again, and this time I saw "Was A Big Bunny", which hints at Dina's idea of a dumpster full of dead ones! I hope that's wrong.

Hilda - You're absolutely right! This drives home the need to reintroduce our children to the craft of legible handwriting. If they only knew the time and effort their elders take to decode their communications, surely they would step up to the challenge.

Thanks for trying, everyone!

So you DO have a dumpster diving photo! Why does that not surprise me, Elaine?
You inspired me to post graffiti today.
