Ugly Trash

Less than two meters below the elevated urban railroad tracks. This dark place was leaking rainwater from everywhere, and every part of it was rusting. Trash was dumped there. I began to feel this desolate landscape as if it were a cry of something.

I bought a camera shortly before I was diagnosed with depression or bipolar disorder and am a self-taught photographer.
