The Human Footprint
Happy April Fool's Day! and Happy Mothering Sunday everyone!
Old Exercise Machine
Today's photos feature the human footprint. We like trailing (NZ) in the Nature(Danish) but prefer surroundings undisturbed by the human footprint. Yesterday was the warmest day of the year so far (18 degrees Celsius) when rolled-up sleeves were required on our walk. It was interesting to see old coffee cups in mid-recycling, an old exercise machine minus saddle, and how close-by dwellings had produced a duckweed-type growth on a pond. It reminded me of a daily walk long ago past a cow carcass. It gradually was recycled that summer in about three weeks. All that was left was a half pelvic bone and a piece of skull. The rest had been eaten up by something. Not like coffee cups or exercise machines or ( as in Alan's example ) an old scooter. No-one wants to eat those. We also came across a plastic bag of discarded music CDs. The plastic bag had almost entirely disintegrated, showing that at least some human-made thing had recycled....
The CDs were in perfect shape!
