Island Of The Damned

I just chanced clicking upon this photo out of several interesting portfolios on Dillon Marsh's website. It's a stark and rather stolid affair, not a particularly great image by any means- so I wasn't prepared for the wave of emotion that the caption nevertheless brought forth, a myriad of vividly woeful plights of abandonment, starvation and suicide... and perhaps, just maybe, the solitary tale of life long love from an equally rejected  rescuer.

Lives forever lost on a godforsaken lump of land, their stories never to be told...

The human propensity to punish ourselves, both individually and en masse, is forever boundless.
