The Green Wedge & Lysterfield Park :: 13 April 2014
Between Glenfern Road and Wellington Road. Shot with iPhone 4S.
Some of these tracks are now frequented by the walking equivalent of the infamous weekend cyclists that visit the hills. What I didn’t photograph was the red face-washer I picked up from the track (SCORE!) along with the empty water bottles and energy/protein packaging people drop *willy nilly*.
But rather than getting Dave-Hughes-ANGRY at the unknown disrespectful citizens that create this mess (which would doubly ruin my time spent at such places), I’m going to try picking up such rubbish without giving negative thoughts to anyone or the situation, and instead perhaps even try doing so with a love FOR the area and the minimal care I give it, for myself and others like myself that visit these areas partly because of the lack of human activity evident in them.
I remembered that in the past, when I’ve quietly willed for something to come about, I’ve been pleasantly surprised when it has eventuated through no direct intervention on my behalf. I figure that if I do what I feel is the right thing and subconsciously internally will that others (that I don’t really interact with – or even see) may join me in leaving these areas looking pristine.
If that “new-age-eque” approach fails, I’ll just hide in the bushes in camo with a dart gun and tranquillise the fuckers.
