We as humans think we have control over our environment, yet given enough time nature has a way of taking back that control. What was once a parking area, now slowly being shadowed and overgrown by the unrelenting force of nature.
Discards left by those without care decay back to the elements they were formed from.
Attempts to harness the power of water rust from the very force of it’s hidden strength.
The roads that once carried men and machines now crumble as the earth renews itself.
Once lined spots now carry rivulets of water with every rain.
Man’s long term efforts to contain and control are futile in the face of the unending power of nature.
I found these unknown ruins behind the Petro truck stop in Columbia South Carolina while walking my dog Vinny today.
