I drive by this recycling facility often. These cans are crushed into large square cubes and then put on trucks. The bright colors have always been rather appealing so I stopped by the place when it was closed and took a couple of pictures.

This photo must not feel good, because it has a lot of evidence which would have to be nature is. It's great that the cans are in this together.

The frightening thing is that it becomes art ! Really does.

Ca me fait penser aux compressions de Cesar (avec des cannettes à la place des voitures). Une belle réalisation!

A superb capture with marvelous colour combinations and excellent processing. I am sure all these cans will be recycled and put to good use once again . Wishing you a great weekend.

Wonderful work. I love all the color. It has a kind of pop art look to it.

A great composition made up of such ordinary cans! With their own colors and logos, this makes a great collage that fills the frame perfectly. I love the "sides" created when the cans are "cubed."

ASTONISHING VIEW !!! Photographically speaking... superb ! From a more mundane point of view... sad to think in so many rubbish we throw to the world. Great provoking and intriguing image !!!
