Taken behind a derelict building (the only one of its kind, mind you...) near my neighborhood. Right where I am standing to take this shot, I was surrounded by all kinds of fugly shite that would make many photographers dismiss this as a possible location...boxes, wooden pallets, beer bottles, abandoned furniture, etc.

But you only need enough pretty stuff to fill the frame...no one has to see the rest of the setting (I recall that as I took this, I was standing on the edge of a plastic bag to keep it from blowing into the frame).

In the midst of even the filthiest of filth, there is beauty to be found...you just have to look for it :)
