Believe it or not, you are looking at a photo of the most important resource there is. The soil is our greatest treasure. People living in cities, like myself, sometimes forget the importance of where the most of the food grows. Everything you eat, except seafood, grows out of this. Sometimes I wonder if we'll wake up before various industries pollute the last square mile of clean land on Earth. Personally, I would ban every form of pollution. No matter the costs, no matter the profits. If we continue poisoning the soil and food we eat, the price we'll pay in the end will come with a super high-interest rate and we'll all end up broke.
This example of macro photography is quite simple. I played with the depth of field, making the top left side slightly out of focus, while to the right it becomes sharper. The deep shadows I've left dark to create dynamics. The black and gold colour scheme works. The soil is above gold. One cannot eat oil, gold, silver or diamonds. I believe that people forget very simple facts too often and add too much value to things that don't support life.
I very much like the small roots. They stand for life. Did you know that all plants are connected underground? There is a fungus called Mycorrhiza connecting all of them and works toward exchanging all of the needed resources between them so that every plant can prosper and grow in a mutually friendly surrounding. I know this because I've filmed a documentary film about scientists who were researching this wonderful phenomenon years ago.
This example from the plant world, my friends, should be a whitepaper for our own doings.
"Buy land because there will never be more of it," a wise man said. "...and keep it clean," I'd add. Maybe you can think of another example of something with a definite and limited supply? :D
