The range of plastic refuse one encounters at the Falls of the Ohio State Park is both numbing (it’s obviously trash and shouldn’t be here) and morbidly fascinating (the design sensibility and colors ) catches one’s eye and occupies the mind. Consider the variations in something as mundane as “spray bottle triggers” if indeed this is what you call these things? I’m not sure when I started noticing these objects and photographing them…but here they are. Each adventure to the river is sure to garner multiple images and story lines that I sift through at my leisure. Consider this a personal cleansing of the spray bottle trigger palette. Ironically, much thought went into designing each of these beauties to facilitate dispersal of their contents from plastic bottles. I like the rotating tips that give me options such as “spray” or “stream” and so forth. These triggers are ingenious and they do their jobs well. Without further adieu and fanfare…here are more images from an admittedly odd collection.
One final image in closing. You know you have “arrived” when a cute miniature is produced. Here’s a recent find from a sandy bank of the Ohio River at the Falls of the Ohio State Park.
