This is a scene I encountered at my son’s track meet a few weeks ago. Having begun a home-recycling program in earnest last year, when I see a trashcan over-flowing with plastics (and aluminum), it sends me over the edge!
For Friday’s 40-or-less Photo Challenge this week, share your response to this photo. You don’t have to be literal, although that’s fine, too. Does it make you think pollution? Needing to find a bathroom after drinking mass quantities of liquid? Can you see a spiritual correlation? Does a snappy caption come to mind? Are you challenged to step up your environmental stewardship? And, I dare anyone to wax poetic over TRASH!
Give it your best shot, post the photo (if you’d like) and a 40-or-less word post on your own blog, then link that post here on Friday. I can’t wait to see your interpretations…it’s always fun to see how similarly AND how differently we think.

Ugh! It makes me sad to see all that trash! I recently trekked all over town trying to find a place to recycle my glass baby food jars.
I got here via Wordless Wednesday so wasn’t expecting 40PC … however, I see this kind of thing here at the beach more often than I’d care to admit, and it makes me wonder what people are thinking! I’ll think about what I might want to share on Friday at one (or both) of my blogs. My (almost) WW is up at Small Reflections this morning, but also shared some photos on my other blog at Sacred Ruminations this weekend on Sunday. Would love to have you visit either (or both) if time permits ;–)
Hugs and blessings,
Me too!!!! I will chase someone down if I see them liter. Big pet peeve of mine.
Hi Robin–I’m up at http://laurasalas.livejournal.com/75993.html
I’m a joiner.
Oh. Wow. I’m really gonna have to think on this one. Come up with something really good.
I don’t like litter, either. I also don’t like all the abandoned plastic, like you said we can recycle it. Though, I’m not one to speak – I don’t have a recycling plan. I’ve been meaning to call our local dump because I heard they have recycling bins there. Guess I should get around to that.
I’m joining…will post it in an hour…it’s Friday in my place already! 🙂
