Last weekend, we took a walk along the side of the River Swale, in Richmond. As expected, there was plenty of litter around and along the river banks, and whilst it’s a pity people feel the need to just drop rubbish all over instead of just taking it home, or finding a bin, the thought did occur to me that this might be something I’d like to focus more on. Litter is ephemeral, it’s made up mostly of things that were never meant to last, or to be re-used. Add the constant flow of running water, and those pieces of rubbish are quite literally here one day, and gone the next.
I’ve put a few of the shots from that roll up on Flickr, but these are my two favourites.
