We Were But Organics

Photo: We Were But Organics - Downtown Springfield, Illinois

I submitted a similar image from the same location which appears in the current edition of the Illinois Times. Ugly, yet beautiful. Organic, yet hardware. A synthesis of old, and new. I worked the image using various digital edits to give the photograph an otherworldly look. Could this possibly be downtown Springfield, Illinois?

I titled the image, and this post, We Were But Organics, based upon my feeling that we are but fragile organic life forms moving closer to the edge of obsolescence in this ever more technology driven society. We link ourselves to the world via technology which we believe will free us, but find ourselves trapped within the intermeshing of that very technology.

Very nuclear winterish. But, I really like that photo.
