Lantau resident “Billy the Cow” has collected photos of washed-up footwear on Pui O beach. His shots were taken as Hongkongers spend a second weekend clearing beaches of an influx of trash.

“Change your wasteful habits and stop blaming others for the mess we are creating for ourselves,” the photographer said.

However, he was happy to see residents taking a greater interest in cleaning up shorelines. “This has been happening on Pui O Beach for many years, now. I am happy to see so many humans finally taking an interest in cleaning up my yard.”

The photos were taken in the space of ten minutes.
