I've enjoyed photography for years and often I enjoy taking photos of the ugly side of life. Not all the time, I take pretty pictures too, but when I see something neglected, I'm drawn to it. I enjoy heightening the contrast on a photo as well to bring out the "harshness" of the subject, as I've done here. If you live in Silver Spring this might actually be familiar to you. These two barrels have existed at the back of the CVS parking lot off of University Blvd for years. I don't know what's inside them but I do know the sign across the front is thoroughly, completely and absolutely unnecessary.

Click to enlarge and see barrels in all their nauseating glory.
