The subject here is what would the world be like if humans suddenly ceased to exist. This subject fascinates me and excites me. It got me thinking about what the world would look like after humans rummaged it. This photo was taken in Monterey County. I like this representation because it is abandoned and ransacked and trashed yet the plants grow towards the building. It is a bit of a play on what we would leave behind and how it wouldn’t be left so great.
