After my Potty Mouth Interview with Elizabeth Doud I decided to find out for myself if she was full of shit or just batshit crazy about this irreversible dilemma of plastics pollution in our planet’s oceans. Mom says she’s a fine gal with gold glitter and fancy words. So I went to Morningside Park in Miami, FL, where else would Miami be, Ohio? Yah, right. Anyway, Elizabeth is right–ocean pollution is real. I photographed lots of plastic–Gatorade caps, Wet Willies plastic cups,brand name juice containers–all washed up and/or dumped on shore. The irony: Morningside is probably the wealthiest neighborhood in the city of Miami and it’s littered with plastic. Prime property baby, right on Biscayne Bay. Hell, let’s just call it Plastics Bay. Go, check it out. Get down on all 4s (no rude remarks kids) and you’re in the North Pacific Gyre.
“The Gyre is real, and coming to a beach near you.” –Elizabeth Doud
