PLASTICS, BENJAMIN. PLASTICS!

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Things Made Out of Plastic


So much of today’s world is plastic. Modern plastic may not look like plastic. It may look — even feel — like glass, leather, wood, or metal. It’s impossible to remember a world without plastic. However much we claim to despise it, we need it.

    • Logitech sells mice in all kinds of designs. Most of them are NOT expensive, either AND they go on sale. Your tall and if you have bigger hands, you might want a full-size mouse. They also make mouses that are also trackball. But throughout the line, they do these adorable designs. I think Logitech was the first and still the best. These mouses never wear out or go bad.

While some plastic may take a long time to break down many versions are less robust and begin to return to their component elements immediately upon exposure to the Sun’s UV rays…, and so went Benjamin’s life…
