I'm expecting this image to finish on the last page, as it is not a pretty picture. But I saw this messy clutter during my search for AWWWWWW at Lake Balboa (which I failed to find, there), and it stopped me in my tracks. It is a pile of garbage that coalesced on the shore, and contains everything a child might use and discard on any given day:

"Food" (Doritos, Takis, Panda Express)
Utensils (paper plate, plastic cup, plastic bag)
Nature (a feather, dried leaf)

and of course

Toys (Barbie. Disrespectfully displayed on a heap of garbage.)

I found the whole mess totally fascinating and very sad.

Found garbage is sometimes truly amazing.
bump (but hold one point for the the too enthusiastic sharpening)
