It's the little things...Monday, January 09, 2012
like collecting "treasures" on the beach.
These photos are from late fall, I forgot my digital camera that day and was forced to shoot only film (which I just got developed a few days ago).
Anytime time Kevin and I take a walk on the beach I randomly pick up things that catch my attention, which is probably more than you could imagine. On this instance I decided I wanted to pick up everything I found and neatly lay it all out to photograph when I was finished. This was only 15 minutes or so of collecting!!
There is always a ridiculous amount of litter on the beach. Perhaps I'm strange but picking these things up that people seem to have forgotten after a fun day of frolicking in the sun or that wash up on the beach from the lake is so interesting to me. Curlers? A glue bottle lid? The letter "P"? So weird.
On of my favorite finds from the day is that thing that has "BØ" on it. I'm not 100% sure what the heck it is but I liked it so much I brought it home (you can actually see it on my shelf in this post). Anyone know what it is or what it means?(and actually rather embarrassing) to admit that picking up trash on the beach is super fun to me. But that's actually pretty awesome, someone needs to help clean up the beach so why not someone who gets a kick out of it? Next time you're at the beach take a small bucket and pick up all the trash you find (bring gloves if you think it sounds icky!) it's surprisingly fun to look at all the strange things you find there when you're all done, plus you're doing good for the earth!
