A series of images all taken in 2012. On themes covered I decided to reflect the beauty I find in recycling, wreckage, peace and strange and odd little things. The bag is one that resides in a charity shop with currently no buyers. The powder compact is one of my own. My favourite is the ill and lonely every envelope stuffed with the prescriptions of ill patients just in my town with only around 5,000 residents. A lot of the population is aged but I suspect the cheap stodgy food is a contributing factor to the poor health. White dove of peace was taken a few hundred yards from the previously mentioned photo near a pub. Estate agents fiend was taken smack bang in the middle of the two previous points in very early January.
