    This " messy " pic reminds me of a series of similar topic taken by a pair ( couple-husband and wife team ) of reknown Hong Kong professional photographers.
    Their theme consist of " messy " corners of daily houshold, commercial, offices, workshops, factories space etc. Look messy but actually is a very meticulously planned out composition of forms, shapes, colour harmony, topping up with professional lighting....resulting messy but yet tidy.... and a piece of art.

    Hi, I didn't know somebody did such a concept too. I was going along that line as to compose something "messy" but in a beautiful manner. Do you know their names? Would love to see their works.

    As a matter of fact, I'd seen those picture during my infant stage of photography, for that moment my reaction was : wow, so messy also can take picture ah ? But then, they were works of a pair of reknown photographers and I'd seen their other works regularly featured in those HK photo mags, so I pause and look, slowly begins to appreciate the difficulties involved. My conclusion was then; this is too advance and difficult for me and I gave it a pass. Now your pic had triggered my memory, that's why a good pic seen will be locked indefinitely in our memory bank.

    Surely you could revive this trend, but perhaps start off with lesser items and find a location with good natural light,then slowly you can expand / increase the numbers of items.

    I would say this one is also suitable for the title:

    Life is a beautiful mess

    It's a wonderful gift to be able to feast upon our
    memories and know who we are in what we see!

    More recollection of old time memory...the theme title was " disorderly orderly " ( 乱中有序 ).

    Forward's pic does not fit into this category...for the cigarette butt...suitable title could be " speedway to hell " ( harsh and treatening ) or " cause of illness " ( more gentler ).
