Black plastic hell

Unfortunately not all holiday memories are good ones.............this is probably not what you are expecting to read just days after I get home from a trip....it certainy isn't what I expected to be writing but it's the truth.
In Jordan I was amazed and horrified by the amount of rubbish lying along the roadsides....cans, plastic bottles, wrappers etc etc but by way the worst was the plastic bags, in particular black bags that had become attached to fences and then shredded by the wind leavings shreds of plastic blowing in the breeze.
 So, this is my homage to fences festooned with shredded black plastic......if ever there was an advert for banning plastic bags it was this........



On a brighter note this KRAK DES CHEVALLIERS, a Crusader castle in Syria......absolutely beautiful....and no plastic in sight!

what a beautiful picture of the castle in contrast to the harshness of the black plastic festooned barbed wire.

You may have disliked the black bags but it made for a great journal page!

well, you did manage to make a really interesting and cool journal page from the plastic hell. :0) I love how your pages are a little "darker" and...what's the word I'm lokoing for?...I don't know, but I love 'em!

I despair at the site of plastic rubbish spoiling the landscape, at least paper will rot eventually.

Fantastic page though, very evocative.

Such a powerful page, especially the barbed wire! Good job there were beautiful castles too ...

Very effective, passionate and powerful. The sharpness of the barbed wire image then the soft blur of the shredded bags gives SUCH a feeling of motion. WONDERFUL spread. Ok, so where did the barbed wire image come from?
