I was wanting to take a good sunset shot at the beach this afternoon but it was a bit hard to ignore the trash piled up on the beach. I got my sunset shot but angled my camera towards the beach and took 50 photos of different pieces of trash within a 50 meter stretch of the beach. Look at this spectacular planet and the incredible views and life it provides us and look at how we treat it.
At what point do we say as a human race “Well that’s enough then, this has to stop”. Is it now? Tomorrow? Was it yesterday? Are we all just too late to stop this crazy take on life we have carved out for ourselves.
Watching locals run around bare foot taking selfies in and around trash filled beaches in Sumatra just seems so sureal. Others enjoying a snack watching the sunset just a few feet from piles of trash. Just stop for a second and look at it from the outside, it is certainly within the realms of insanity.
Are we all that self obsessed that we chose to continue to ignore the obvious so we can feed our social media needs and ignore the real world around us. What a sad state we are in as an intelligent race. As Paul Watson once said “Intelligence is the ability of a species to live in harmony with its environment”. I agree. At least we should be trying a hell of a lot better to live in harmony with this planet.
