Shattered beyond repair

Violent ending

It's said that everything has a story, and I'm sure the bottle that begat this collection of glass shards must have had its own. Who dropped or threw it here, then left the mess behind for others to repair - or run into? We'll never know, of course, but part of me wishes we could.

Despite feeling sad - or maybe it's disappointed - that human nature allows otherwise pristine streets to become filled with messes like this, I still found myself enjoying the aesthetics of the thing. Can you simultaneously be disgusted by and attracted to the same scene? I'm guessing you can.
