I sometimes wonder what the mindset is.  If I can come to some understanding then I don't quite as irritated.  Maybe they think there is a dedicated staff at the resorts that picks up what ever trash is left behind on the beaches?  Maybe they come from a place that is so overrun with trash that it is somehow normal?  Maybe the kids have them so wound up they simply forgot?

What ever the case may be it's hard to be ok with seeing a beautiful place like this being littered so often.  I shoot at the resorts often and this is every single day that someone leaves their coffee or tea cup on the rocks with their lei (the string inside stays long aftet the flowers die), plastic packaging from their snorkel gear, discards from their day. 

 

I caught myself a while ago as I finished up my session and began picking up stuff on the way back to the parking lot.  It seemed as if every step I took there was another thing to pick up and I had begun to think negatively.  "Who raised these people?!"  I thought when my hands became too full to manage camera gear and all the trash.

STOP!!!!

 

 This is my happy time ya know?  Having just completed a session with another incredible family who I really connected with while getting all the shots I wanted the way I wanted them.  Yet, there I was walking back the car with a disdain in my heart and very possibly on my face.  Neither are helping me.  

That was the moment I decided to simply do it out of love. 

It think its the little things that can be the most rewarding.  So when I do them I do them with a smile.  There is something uplifting in the moment now.  I showed up and rocked the session, made new friends, and left it a little cleaner than I found it.

 

Spin the moment.
