Trash bin Sculpture, Puerto Natales, Chile

Trash bin sculpture Puerto Natales, Chile

The title says it all, doesn’t it?

I spotted several of these playful meticulously sculpted metal trash bins throughout Puerto Natales, a town of about 18,000 in Chilean Patagonia that’s best known as the gateway to Torres Del Paine National Park, the most popular national park in South America.

To the trash bin sculpture-curious among you, I suggest you check out this gallery of this dude’s sculpted distant cousins in El Chalten, Argentina, where they’re apparently allowed to run rampant.

And for the Puerto Natales-curious, I posted a brief visitors’ notebook and image gallery here.

Today’s Pic du Jour, the site’s 764th straight, was snapped in Puerto Natales, Chile on 06-Feb-2013, exactly three years ago today.
