this is my portrait of dave, the keeper of the gate at our local garbage transfer station. (aka, the dump). growing up, the garbage dump was always accessible day or night / you took a load out and that was that. now, there are set hours, so it's become a bit of a 'deal', going on a dump run. open only 2 afternoons a week, it's a special event. "doin' a dump run tomorrow"???
dave was kind enough to sit for this photograph (it was a slow day).
