17th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
swimming in plastic

I created this image to promote environmental awareness. The plastic pollution crisis weighs heavy on us all. This image represents the large volume of plastics polluting our oceans and the harmful impact on the marine life. For this image I used blue plastic bags to represent the water and toy whales and sharks.
