Urban Decay: Garbage or Coloring Your View?
This shiny, heart-shaped sucker was inside a planter outside my apartment. I despise, loathe, detest littering, but for whatever reason this flash of red caught my eye on the way to vote. I stopped to take several photographs of it which made me wonder: did this bit of garbage improve my day? There is ironic beauty in the striking color, the symbolic shape, the idea that someone tossed their “love” away and the fact that the sucker was still just garbage. The point is that there is beauty and history in all things…take a moment to observe your environment. While you’re at it, give a hoot…don’t pollute.
