The Litter Experiment

I placed this cup in a vulnerable position, teetering on a cement block next to a parking lot. I can't be sure, but I think the wind knocked it over where it came to rest in a gap in the chain that surrounds the lot. This is a well-worn path, and the cup slowly got ground down by shoes and boots until it wasn't much more than dust. Interestingly, I watched a city worker look right at it while he was picking up nearby litter.
