Once the weather started heating up, more people started coming to my favourite beach. It became filled, absolutely filled, with human garbage. People can be such animals. It was a stinking vile mess. It became too depressing for me to see my favourite place like that (literally nowhere to sit where I wasn’t surrounded by trash), so I knew I would have to wait for autumn storms to start washing and renewing this natural space. Now that the weather has cooled, and the beaches have cleared, I can once again return to my explorations.
I know many of my photos do in fact show small fragments of human existence worn by nature into the landscape, but I can assure you it is nothing in comparison to the absolute disregard for nature and other people that I witnessed this summer. Let’s just say it left my faith in humanity somewhat….short.
However, now I’m back to blissfully empty beaches and unusual odds and ends, so, for whatever it’s worth, thank you for sticking with me and I hope you enjoy these photos and more to come!
