"May the moments I capture through my photography show the beauty of the world we live in to those who may never get a chance to see it." Michele Barker, Photographer
One of my missions with my photography is to carry out the above purpose. To capture natures beauty and to preserve that moment in time that will never be seen the same way again. For generations to come that may never realize what beauty we once had, and for those who are not able to get out and see the scenery and wildlife. But all too often when I am out capturing the beauty and wonder of nature, I am confronted with scenes like this.
Trash scattered around everywhere. During my owl photo mission, it seemed like every beach and marsh that I was at had an abundance of trash everywhere. It ranged from medical waste, sneakers, cans and bottles to childrens toys. To see such a senseless act, and wonder why it is so hard to dispose of our trash properly is something I will never understand. If we would only take care of what we have now, generations to come could have an adventure of their own and discover the beauty of the world they live in.
Realizing the effects of our actions and correcting them now can have a positive impact on the future for everyone and everything!
