It should be one of the main goals in today’s society to reduce plastic consumption and to educate people on the environmental and global changes and problems that we are currently facing. Even though many of us believe that recycling will solve the problem, and continue using plastic, it is actually the complete opposite.

“Geometrical Asia”: Minimalist Street Photography Series By Víctor Morante

All these photos were taken in India, Thailand, and Vietnam. I’m always seeking for that particular spot to make the photos look quiet, tidy and colorful, quite the contrary with the reality, those countries, in particular, are very busy. The point also of this series is that isn’t that easy to know where the photos were made, they could be photographed anywhere in the world. More:

Lesser Sunda Islands, Indonesia

1

Travel photographer Jonne Seijdel captures incredible sights & animals at the Lesser Sunda Islands, Indonesia.

The Lesser Sunda Islands consist of two geologically distinct archipelagos. The northern archipelago, which includes Bali, Lombok, Sumbawa, Flores and Wetar, is volcanic in origin. The islands of the southern archipelago, including Sumba, Timor and Babar, are non-volcanic.

More than half of the original vegetation of the islands has been cleared for planting of rice and other crops, for settlement and by consequent forest fires. Only Sumbawa now contains a large area of intact natural forest, while Komodo, Rincah and Padar are now protected as Komodo National Park.

A number of the islands having original vegetation of dry forest rather than the rain forest that covers much of the Indonesian region, have been designated by the WWF as the Lesser Sundas deciduous forests ecoregion.
