What is one persons trash if truly another persons treasure. I snapped this photo in New Zealand recently as I found the colours where interesting. Not only the lids of bins attracted me but the colours the lane had been painted some interesting colours too.
I decided to play around with this photo on Adobe Kuler an online colour tool. Using Kuler you can pick colours from a photograph and come up with some great colour schemes.
Here are the colours that first attracted me. You can see them mainly on the walls of the lane way
Then I started to muck about with the colour selection
Obviously the colour of the rubbish bin lids interested me
Once I started I could not stop
Isn’t it amazing how someone else trash can be so interesting?
If you are interested in Adobe Kuler, it is a free online web based tool and there is more information about it here.
This is an interesting way to play, Sharon. I also found the video explaining how to use Kulor very informative!
