WordPress’s weekly photo challenge for the week is “Wrong.” We’re asked to submit images that reflect, “There’s something wrong here.”
Living along Latin America’s Pacific Coast, I often witness scenes that reek of wrongness. Most of those aren’t directly related to life in Latin America, but to the daily serving of flotsam that the Pacific Ocean offers each day. Becoming more aware plays a part in our planet’s health, though finding active and positive ways to change things is a more difficult task. Through WordPress’s platform, I am grateful to pass along these images that reflect “Wrong.”
There are other concerns, and one is shrimp boats that trawl too close to the beach with illegal nets. There are several posts about the olive ridley sea turtles on my other site.
Watching the mangroves disappear one by one has been especially difficult, as they lined the riverbank beside my house. Why a few sections of trees could not be saved still baffles me, but it reflects the vast differences and attitudes of man. (And Then There Was One)
I tend NOT to photograph the ‘wrong’ or the ugly of this world unless it shows a sense of humor. I often wonder if the local municipality ever gets environmental impact studies before bulldozing their way through nature’s rights, and Mother Nature seemed to have bitten back on another project that was happening upriver!
Two points for Mother Nature! Sometimes we have to speak up or get trampled on!
