Sadly, people are slobs and leave their rubbish all over the place. I was pretty annoyed to find it around Trafalgar Park when shooting a few days ago.
Last year there was a fire that burned out many of the gorse, broom and other thorny bushes, so it is concerning to see so many fresh cigarette butts lying around in the dry season. And, the stone memorial bench looks pretty awful with drinks cups (8 that I collected and binned) on it and around it, along with their bag. As I came on this scene, I could hear just a few metres away the clang of the lid closing on the garbage can at the lookout, some more conscientious person using it. In my mind it is bad advertising for the companies that supply and proudly label these products too – I had not heard of them before, but now feel disinclined to buy their wares, it will make me think of garbage.

This post prepared in advance of my trip. I will be back in a few days; in the meantime this is a continuation of a series from Trafalgar Park, in Oak Bay near Victoria, BC. I won’t be reviewing the blog, but will reply to comments when I get back.
