|This photograph was taken at the Leslie Spit on Lake Ontario in Toronto,Canada.|
I often like to walk along the shore of the spit, and check out the eroded face of the shoreline for long ago buried artifacts, mostly metal scraps, spoons, forks, brass lipstick containers, irons, tiles, glass polished and tumbled by the waves.
But on a spring day in 2010 I found a water bottle just peeking out crammed between layers of metal, dirt and rocks. The cap was still on it and the bottle was half full, I removed the cap for a moment to take this picture. I put the cap back on and left it wondering how many half full or empty plastic bottles waited somewhere in landfills to be discovered in hundreds of years from now.
