Some cool the pick up artist images:

My work space yesterday. I pick up aluminum cans off the streets, and out of trash bins, bring home and wash throughly. Then I create something of value with them.
See next photo for the results….

I arrived in France in February 2000.
If the light is crisp, it is not the winter I expected. It’s cold, yes, but rainy! It was like a cheap grade school watercolor version of November, without the richness of autumn.
There is an abandoned cider-tree orchard in the middle of my village (Gisancourt). In this cemetery-like ambiance, I walked silently through, and in the coffins of patches of grass that survived the frost of January I picked up mommies of last year’s harvest. The desiccated brown apples were the richest colored gems Normandy offered me at that moment.

I really like the FEVRIER picture. It is most outstanding. I think the best part is the core of the apple exposing the tree inside. I think that it is a wonderful concept and you should keep up the good work. It also seems very graphic for some reason.
