day 296 – four circlesPosted: September 17, 2011
There is symmetry in circles like these two ant holes, the squashed aluminum can, and the manhole covers. These images make me consider it is apparent that we impact on the landscape and that it impacts on us. Virtually all ecosystems on Earth have been affected by our presence. We have the ability to adapt to our environment and to adapt our environment to us in ways that significantly affect the planet. As our population increases our draw upon the planet’s resources increase.
We are a part of the ecosystem of our planet and rely upon a healthy ecosystem to supply our needs for survival. While a great deal of our impact on the planets resources has been detrimental to the ecosystem our habits can change and are very slowly changing to reduce human impact and preserve our resources.
