River trash photo settled

The right photo to convey the right meaning is not always an easy thing to agree on. An understatement to say the least, but it’s an important process nonetheless.

It reminds me of choosing the right color of the paint for the bedroom, and though you might like a hint of yellow, your wife tells you that statistically couples are 75% more likely to quarrel in a yellow room. So yellow is out.

Statistics or not, the right paint as well as the right photo is key. For our national site, the top viewed page is our photo album, so images are very important.

We went back and forth with the leading trash image on the National River Cleanup website and I think we’re at a temporary resting place. Looks like we’re planning on keeping the original image [see above] but moving the photo up a bit so that the tires are a little more present, giving the feeling of trash instead polished rocks (i.e. Styrofoam).
