The Dead, the Living & the Inanimate

Last week I went to another one of those small coastal reserves and shot these photos with my macro lens. Although it was only around 3:00 PM, the sun had already disappeared below a nearby hill to the west. Winter is soon to encroach upon us.

I particularly like the ephemeral leaf on the “eternal” rock. The former inhabitants of the mollusk shells were likely eaten by those hungry sea birds. Then again, mollusks are tasty. Nature is a tough neighborhood–eat or be eaten.

I'm a retired medical sociologist from the University of Rochester. Climate change is one of the two great challenges facing humanity (the other is nuclear weapons). In writing about the impact of climate change I read reputable books and articles on the topic. So when I make statements about climate change you will see a link taking you to the scientific source(s) of the information I provide. As for my independently published photobooks, each has gone through several layers of editing and peer review for both readability and accuracy. This is not to say that everything I say is accurate. Even the New York Times makes mistakes. So, if you find something that is factually incorrect, let me know. I hope you find reading my blog a positive experience. If you do, please encourage your family and friends to have a look. You can find photos from my other photo work by clicking on the My SmugMug Gallery tab, above. Best wishes, -Steve
