Gloves are usually purchased in pairs.  This is a photo essay of several that have gone missing and have been left behind.

All of these were photographed on a the same day during an approximate two-mile walk.  One is left with the impression that this is a lot of missing gloves in what seems to be a relatively short distance-the last three were within a few hundred yards of each other.

Today is also Earth Day and is certainly a time to think about our stewardship of the planet.  Over the years this blog has featured many posts about trash, pollution, and the abandonment of the built environ-all of which leave scars, some more durable than others.  Climate change is another main theme herein and is arguably the main environmental issue of our time. Earth Day is important as it is one way to draw attention to such issues.  The problem is when they are ignored the other 364 days of the year.
