Littering the Sidewalks Rumble!

13

After winter must come spring (and another election if you live in Canada). When the snow subsides and leaves behind, the treasures its been burying, usually garbage. We want to see your shots from this muddy, sticky and littered time of year.

    I see the trash every day on my way home some of it is hard to get at ! Most of that is from high school student that hang out at the stairs we have 3 very steep and long stair in town ( Mountain Town) I always help at the elementary school out an earth day and clean up garbage on the street etc . I wish the high school teachers get there students to clean up there own trash !! It is not a lack of garbage cans either there is on an the top and bottom of all the stairs .It's just being cool and rebellious I guess!? I don't remember it is to long ago since I was that age !! There is some more melting of snow going an and soon I will shoot some mud yukky trash pic's!!

    @dyluzo:
    I have to admit I have very seldom had problems to read through someone's comment on this site.
    May I suggest a certain article to you?
