A lovely day at the beach, ahh NOT

 

Not long ago I decided to go down to Sumner beach for some fresh air and perhaps some inspiration. I bought my camera with me incase the sunset was worth the snap. As I was taking a stroll it wasn't the beauty of the seascape that caught my attention but what I found between my feet....  

By the end of the walk I had photographed and collected two large bags filled with rubbish. I had remembered meeting Andy Hughes at an exhibition I was in back in the UK and had thought about how he had captured this surreal sense of beauty through photographing disgusting rubbish that just shouldn't be there.

After looking back at some of the photographs, although not as impressive as Mr Hughes, it must have been the combination of the man-made objects against the organic surroundings that encouraged me to take more.  

Perhaps this is a interesting starting point for a new project...
