Heaps of Discarded Objects


[Media: Images]

Take a look at this photo gallery of large piles of similar objects. The picture above is of a large pile of discarded cell phones. I find these sorts of pictures disturbingly fascinating as they show just how much "stuff" we humans end up throwing away. I sometimes daydream and wonder how large would a pile get if we collected all the keys, nail clippings, baseballs, etc in the world.

If you like this sort of thing, you will probably enjoy Edward Burtynsky's material as well.
