#134-365 Grunge

I don't pretend to understand this concept, for me the word has always had the connotation of "Schungy" or "Reprehensible", so when I read of the more talented of you attempting a grunge look, my first question is "WHY"?

I have read what lots of clever people have had to say about it but still don't get it, unless this is "Grunge". I have done nothing to this shot except adjust some lighting, it is a marsh disbursement/ storm water canal, which normally displays quite off putting coatings of slime and the like. As I was walking over the small bridge following a quite heavy down pour I noticed it at what I consider it's best, which I tried to capture here, and I am rather proud of this shot, as to me it now has a slight appeal in appearance.

I would say this definitely has a grungy appearance - only you would go out and look for sewage runoff. LOL No, really, I like what you came up w/, the smooth dirty water shows hints of reflections and some interesting colors and contrasts!

I really like the picture and the junk on the water. Grunge to me is just kind of an urban gritty look. I don't know what it means to anyone else though.

Hi Ron,
I'm with you on "grudge". I don't get either. Great photo, with all the colors and textures! See, sewage can be beautiful, kind of!
