The Rubbish Collection B&W

Over a period of five days in January 2013, I collected, sorted and photographed plastic washed up on Marcus Beach, Sunshine Coast, Queensland.

Rubbish Collection
These photographs made into collage images bear the title “The Rubbish Collection”.

Tongue in Cheek? Absolutely, but….

Picking up debris, predominantly plastic, from the beach reminds me each day why I  avoid single use plastic packaging, say no to plastic bags and plastic drink bottles, and choose food items packaged in cardboard or glass wherever possible. Many of us at Marcus pick up rubbish on our daily beach walk. It’s a small contribution to the health of our planet.

On my iPad

Sometimes I just muck around on my iPad when I have a few minutes to spare. It feels like I’m a little kid scribbling with coloured Textas. Art or not, I love it, great fun.
