Filth versus Beauty
The pairing of the cigarette butts and the raw beauty of this tree brings to mind the contradiction between these two opposing forces; man-made refuse and naturally occurring elegance. To many people smoking is considered a “filthy habit” which contributes to the idea of that contradiction. It is the contradictions in and around us that allow our world to function the way it does. With out light there can be no darkness, with out hate there can be no love, without filth there can be no beauty.
