    kiwi's aren't very tidy, but it makes for some interesting photographs. I actually love photographing litter in contrast to nature. Whilst I have gotten comments in the past that it 'messes up' a perfectly good nature scene, for me its about the story:

    Here we go:

    Half a boat hull:

    Nice colors, I like how the 'junk' stands out on the beach.

    Nice work. The "Tuis" (beer?) and "drano" really take the cake. I enjoy the vibrant colors offset by the beautifully sculpted sand.

    As to "messing up" your photos... now honestly, Mark: you can take just a photo of waste on the beach, or (only) you can take a "vonnagy-photo" of waste on the beach.

    Just-a-photo will them probably look "messed up" with the item, while the vonnagy-photo (as always.... :shock: :eek: :roll: :) :D :lol: ) transforms simple waste into a form of art...

    I admire your dedication to your hobby/passion (!) that makes you get up extra early in order to over and again catch this special light! The light in your photos is sooooo "vonnagy-photo-like" - usually I'm still sound asleep when (if ever!) the light is (would be?) like this...

    And your comments :D!
    "Ubu"????
    UBU???
    You mean, really: that is a dog's name?

    Great pictures! Hard to pick a favorite, but I really love the 1st 2. I also like the one with the dog tracks. Telling a story can be very challenging to do, and you do a wonderful job!

    Litter can definitely add to the picture. It just depends on the type of theme you are going for. Anyway, nice pictures once again Mark. I like the tennis one the most out of this set. The shape of the deformed ball and it's bright green color stands out for me.
