While on the trails and various lesser traveled areas this past summer, I came across remnants of buildings and structures. Testaments to man-kinds futility at taming nature. I got the idea to document the scenes with my camera. This summer I will go to a few of the places guarded securely with ‘No Trespassing’ signs for more examples of the inevitable truth of civilization. The truth that no matter how strong our drive to conquer that which exists around us, nature will always overcome our destructive habits and life will flourish in it’s own way. These pictures are some of the scenes I came across and I wish to document others I passed which struck a deeper chord with me.
