    There's something hypnotic about the way the mine lowers down. Despite this it's pretty sad to see an entire mountain gone like this.

    Thanks for the great feedback everyone. It is just an incredible site to see in "real life". The scale of this is hard to understand, it makes you feel very small and also forces you to understand how destructive to the environment and landscape this has been.

    ps. I'm a full time coppersmith so I have a connection to this issue....if we'd all just recycle and/or use float copper, we'd eliminate this. There's really no need to continue mining, we have enough recycled to survive on and use over and over again- we're just mining to sell it to china, and then they sell it back to us....go figure.

    This photo and the story behind it certainly gives perspective on how we are able to alter our environment around us -- and this is just one mine throughout the world. Can you imagine the level of damage done collectively to our environment by all the mines similar to this put together? But to play devils advocate . . . if not for this mine, and mines like it, what might the alternatives be to what is reaped from such mines? Are there alternatives? And if there are alternatives, are they better or worse than what we use now?

    This is absolutely beautiful. I do think that the shot of the pink flowers should have been published 1000 times though, i miss being able to look at it on JPG :( lol

    I will miss your photos so much. I liked showing them to anyone who would look with me. I was trying to show them to my son, home from art school, and you were gone! Now I am running around from post to post in a panic writing sentimental crap....

  • Federico

    Federico said (30 Jul 2008):

    Thank you! because of the photo that teach how to add links of my photos. What about all this discussion: I think that you shouldn't be so surprised coz in my opinion is normal what happen I think that we all will have the opportunity to see our photos published or loved by someone else; what is important are our photos, I like the idea of having confront with people, not theyr congratulations or something like that. When someone says that he likes my photo I feel happyness coz it means that I was able to share my feelings. Yesterday I went to a Photography school of Rome to ask some information abut basic course of B&W with film camera, coz I think it is important to learn how to use that techink (not only digital) I was taling with a gir that was explaining me the courses and she asked to me before starting "But you want to make a course coz you want to become a Photographer as professionist?" and I asked her "Do you think that making photos is a profession?" ... she was not able to answer--- that's all! All my point of view is in this question, I think that we should only make photos and that's all. Do you know why I'd like to make a course of photography? coz I'd like to know all the secrets to do things in and Make photos in opposite! (always following the rules) but technical rules and that one of someone else... I hope that everybody makes photos and I will never copy anybody else. Life is extraordinary! Photos has to teach this! ^^ I love your photos , hope to see your photos again! ;)
