earth gray texture in color

I couldn't help but see a direct correlation between the photo below and the gray scales of my prior post.  Here is the harsh reality of a large scale man-made texture study.  It is important to to be aware of the work we do in the context of our global environment.  It can be inspiration and a reality check.  As much as I want to contribute to the world of design- I then put myself in the position of a designer of stuff, and therefor a threat to the environment from which we have taken for granted for too long.  Allan Chochinov often states, we are not in the design business, but the consequence business.
