Dangers of Light Pollution: Nature: animals confuse artificial lighting for moon and disrupt their natural cycles Human: Circadian Rhythms- Controlled by ‘Ganglion cells’ found inside the eye, controlling the sleep/ wake/ eat cycle + Behavioural functions + pupillary light reflex (dilation of the pupil)- how much light enters the eye and how much we perceive. Ganglion cells have a peak absorption rate of around 480 nM wavelength (blue light) In short: Wrong colour temperature bluish light pollution has greater effect on our sleep/ wake/ eat cycles (circadian) + Behaviour functions Installing too powerful lighting instead of finding the proper low wattage to produce an adequate amount of luminosity results in light pollution from the reflected surface just under the light source. Waste of electricity to light unused spaces.

​I chose waste disposal as my theme for my assignment because I am a environmentalist and I have always wanted not only to keep the environment clean but also to show people how I can shed light on this problem by using photography. My work is to show people how waste disposal is hurting not only us but also the world we live in. By myself using my own mother to symbolize mother nature while a person throws waste onto her will give the viewer a strong feel of human nature over shadowing nature.

The photo shows the drastic reality of how our society will become when consumed by technology. As addicts find happiness within their drug as do we in our technology, the blood and strained eyes represent what damage we a doing to ourselves and our surroundings when we truly become consumed by our devices, which reflects poorly on our environment.

Tea bags are good for composting since they enrich the soil for healthier plants to grow. They add a nitrogen-rich component to the soil and help in balancing the carbon-rich materials found in compost. Thus, these enhance drainage and maintain moisture, promote earthworms, increase oxygen levels and keep the soil structure steady.

Marine litter is one of the major problems related to litter in general. This bottle, which was left on the sand, is going to end up in the sea and carried away. Plastic takes ages to disintegrate, therefore, it is affecting all animals badly since animals can easily mistake it with another animal or food. Plastic releases a lot of chemicals in the sea which affects all animals. Animals taking in poisonous chemicals eventually end up in our system once we eat such animals.

A number of garbage bags together with a broken chair were dumped in the natural environment. People find it more convenient to leave waste behind after a picnic or a BBQ rather than depositing it in bins. Such waste is an eyesore to all by-passers as well as creating environmental hazards. Moreover people could have used reusable picnic items instead of disposable ones in order to reduce waste.
