Human Impact

      Nearly every place we go, there is evidence that humans have been there before us.  Sometimes there are small signs such as a fire ring, or a barely visible trail.  Other times it is massive - Power Plants, Refineries, Mines or Dams.  We humans have always left our mark.  Sometimes the marks are beautiful, other times they are offensive.  I suppose the viewer is the one to choose which it is for them.  I personally find there is beauty in nearly everything I photograph, or I don't make an image.  I don't know what I would ever do with a stack of photos of ugly things.
