trash travels/global garbage

Hi Sylvie, wie versprochen habe ich ein Foto mit einer internationalen Müllkollektion gemacht. Teilnehmer sind - neben Deutschland an erster Stelle - Dänemark, Schweden, Russland, Litauen, Polen, Großbritannien, Niederlande, Italien, USA, Südostasien. Mit Abstand am meisten findet man Lebensmittelverpackungen. Von der Milchtüte bis zum Bonbonpapier.

It is a collection of global trash in the baltic sea - from Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Russia, Latvija, Poland, - baltic states - but also from UK, Netherlands, Italy, Turkey, USA, and South Asia.
(Sylvie is a student and she is going to become a master of marine litter! Isn´t that great?)

old shoes





Old shoes from the beach of a greek island. They are fantastic, aren´t they? From the 50ies or 60ies?

beach polo



Usually our beach is very normal - that´s what I like. This weekend there has been a beach polo cup and a lot of Porsches for decoration. Decadent. But beautiful horses. A big beertent full of very expensive horses.

The cruiseliner season started and our little town will be wonderfully international for the next months.

It looks so warm but the wind is blowing from the baltic sea, which is 8°C cold. Brrrrh.

ocean initatives





The meaning of marine debris, flotsam+jetsam has a totally new dimension when I look at the pictures from Japan. But nevertheless tomorrow the annual beach cleanup weekend from Surfrider Europe starts the season 2011. My favorite trashbeach has been "cultivated" with a tractor - all the trash is now beneath the sand. But there is still enough in the dunes for me to collect. http://www.surfrider.eu/

Hamburg






I´ve been beachcombing with my nephew on the banks of the Alster which is in the centre of Hamburg. It looks like there is more "recreational" trash. No surprise.
My nice and nephew are wonderful assistants - this art project is a result of a game we used to play on the beach. We sort of developed it together.

a little late ...

A little late - I know. But I wanted to give an impression. Meanwhile the beach is top cleaned up again. For days cleanup teams have been busy picking up the little red ones.
