so nice. would love to go there and see it myself :)

Glass Beach is a unique beach, not because nature made it that way, but because time and the pounding surf have corrected one of man’s mistakes.

Beginning in 1949, the area around Glass Beach became a public dump. It is hard to imagine this happening today, but back then people dumped all kinds of refuse straight into the ocean, including old cars, and their household garbage, which of course included lots of glass.

By the early sixties, some attempts were made to control what was dumped, and dumping of any toxic items was banned. Finally in 1967, the North Coast Water Quality Board realized what a mistake it was and plans were begun for a new dump away from the ocean…

Now, over 30 years later, Mother Nature has reclaimed this beach. Years of pounding wave action have deposited tons of polished glass onto the beach. You’ll still see the occasional reminder of it earlier life, such as a rusted spark plug, but for the most part what you’ll see is millions of pieces of glass sparkling in the sun. (As part of MacKerricher State Park, collecting is no longer allowed).

“Martin Wilson painstakingly shoots rolls of 35mm film in sequence so that when the strips are laid out in the contact sheet larger images appear. No cheating in Photoshop, if he makes a mistake, he starts over.”

This should open your eyes. What you strive for in magazines and billboards are not real. They are and always will be altered no matter how great they look before the shoot. Remember to always be yourself or you’ll end up just a copy.

I wish all those “real women” memes focused on photoshopping instead of dress size. We’re *all* dealing with unrealistic standards.
