Burning Can Child Edition by spyed Burning Can Child Edition by spyed
I photographed about two dozen people walking by this can not flinching really. Except for this little girl and one other woman. Eventually the police showed up. But I've never seen such a thing.

Speaking to some deviants later and sharing this photo, they said it was common around here.

Warsaw, Poland - May 2009

I love how your street photography improved and you captured this image very well. Your focus and angle are perfectly done and the black and white takes off many distracting parts and gives this image a great nostalgic look. The puzzled look on the child's face, the two ladies who walks past the fire, the name Delikatesy are very well implanted and even the small trees don't look disturbing. I think this is one of the best street photography I've seen so far and hopefully we'll see more of them in the near future. Excellent and magnificent work and I'll give this a very high rating :#1:

Lol the other day I went to the beach for a spur of the moment bonfire (even though the beach was "technically" closed at one am)and my friends and I came across a trash can on fire and we were all like "Oh shit!" Most of my friends were just going to leave it at that and walk away but I just shouted "No! We have to put it out!" I filled up a bottle of water and poured it in the bin and put out the fire. I felt so good about myself after that... like I WAS frickin smokey the bear. My friends made fun of me because I was so proud of just pouring water in a trash can but I didn't care =] ...So yes... um in conclusion: there are people who care about fires in trash cans...lol

It's fairly regular in Poland. For us it's a 'yet again' factor. That's why nobody really bothers. It's kind of apathic but well that's Poland.

Seriously? I was surprised, that you could see the city guards there - usually noone's interested in those burning trash cans. ;P Sometimes they even look like regular fires - you can see flames there. Nothing - only grill some meat! :XD:

Ja wyraziłam swoje zdanie. Poza tym niczego nie psuję tylko podaję prawdę. Kocham Polskę ale nie ukrywam jej wad. Czy to nie prawda, że dbamy tylko o własne interesy? Może nie wszyscy, ale większość tak. Ciągle jesteśmy niezadowoleni z władzy- a to Tusk zły, a to Kaczyński do niczego. Ministrowie i osoby na wyższych stanowiskach szukają tylko sposobu aby się wzbogacić, przyjmują łapówki.
Dobrym przykładem psucia opinii jest zachowanie większości Polaków względem siebie na emigracji. Mieszkam w Chicago, i co chwila "Polacy" wyzywają od komunistów, robią afery, bo czegoś zapomnieli do urzędu itd. itp.
Polacy mają już częściowo popsutą opinię ale zamiast przyznać się do tego, zastanowić się nad swoim zachowaniem udają, że wszystko jest ok przed resztą świata, a potem nadal robią swoje. Przyjeżdża taki turysta i co widzi? Taki sobie palący się śmietnik, na który nikt nie zwraca uwagi- bo po co? Niech się pali, wszyscy się spieszą.
Tu w Stanach po omdlałego człowieka przyjeżdżają trzy straże pożarne i karetka.

Warto też wspomnieć o panu Kononowiczu.
Albo Joli Rutowicz, która chciała niby do Parlamentu Eutropejskiego.

możesz się ze mną nie zgadzać. Nie chcę robić z tego jakieś afery. Dużo podróżuję i rozumiem kiedy człowiek z kraju gdzie w Parkach Narodowych są porządne kible :), super-drogi z czterema pasami w jedną stronę i autostradami które mają więcej niż 10 km, widzi kiedy przyjeżdża do co prawda biedniejszego -> (tu musisz mi przyznać rację;) kraju.

Jeżeli chcesz więcej przykładów to z chęcią podam.
I bardzo mi przykro, że uraziła cię moja opinia. Masz szczęście, że nie należy ona do ciebie :)

Wow. I really, really, like this picture. :wow:

...the smoking can is strange though. :confused: When someone said that was 'normal' did they explain what it was? Did someone throw a cigarette in the trash can or something?

Whatever it was, it certainly made a great photograph.

Yup, usually it's from cigarettes that people are in too much hurry or too lazy to put out properly and unfortunately it really is quite common... Sometimes people of my country are hopeless :/

At least the people of your country are thoughtful enough to throw cigarettes in the garbage, instead of throwing them on the street like they do here. =(

I like how there's almost half a dozen people in the photo and there's only a single person, a small girl, who even appears to take notice.

And as mentioned above, the black and white really eliminates any distractions. There are some really fine "lines" here that I felt really guided me straight from the two ladies just strolling to the can of fire and to the girl's expression.

I think you captured this in a very good timing with in-sync foot steps of the two ladies and the puzzled look on the child's face .. I like the fact that it's in black and white coz you eliminated all the distracting parts :D

I also like the perfect alignment in the shot .. well done Angelo, I see your photography is getting better :D
