This visual story arose when I joined my wife on a business trip to Hollywood, Florida in December of 2018.  She had an academic conference to attend, while I was going to visit some friends and photograph what I saw and experienced.

What made an impact on me was the magnitude of the “built world” we have created to enjoy a more natural habitat.  In addition, I was struck by the irony of valuing an ocean view in the place where we sleep.  Finally, as I explored my surroundings, I came to feel the isolation of the “No Trespassing” signs, the gated communities, and the barrenness of the poured concrete.

These images are meant to share my interpretation of our relationship with the natural world and the habitat we have built to enable our enjoyment of that world.  

I do hope you enjoy the view!
