Plastic by the ocean

in plasticpolution •  last year

Here are a few photos I took while visiting my brother who lives on Waiheke Island, New Zealand

I am fascinated by how you can find plastic rubbish even in the most remote locations, I hope you enjoy these curiosities and that they make you think carefully about what happens to your rubbish when you're done with it.

A blue pen lid, perhaps used to write a message in a bottle?

A clip from a backpack or perhaps a life vest?

This balloon really surprised me, maybe it was full of helium and let go somewhere far away?

I don't know what this is?

A full bottle of Coke that looks like it was there for a while!

Thanks for the great comment, It's true that we can find beauty all around us if we look hard enough.
The digital camera I used was a pretty basic Olympus VG-120 14 MP Digital Camera they trade for about $50 second hand online. Mine is broken as I dropped it in the sand on that trip to New Zealand, it was a great camera I was just very clumsy with it, LOL!
