Some images become an iconic way in which we remember the past; other images get stuffed into an archive and forgotten. This particular image in the gallery I find fascinating because in our modern society with a strong conservation ethos is at odds with the attitudes of our forebearers. True, it most certainly can be argued that our society is not conservationists, but at least in regard to the Redwood forest, we are. We've enshrined them in song as emblematic of America and federally protected as a National Park and cutting them down is seen as a crime against ecology. Which images to you find interesting? How come?
