Hazardous Conditions OR Limits To Growth!

One of a sequence of photographs taken during a pleasant afternoon stroll along the bay shore of Sandy Hook. Later as I was processing this panorama I decided this image would be a good candidate for the World Wide Panorama Project on "Limits", (follow this link for a 360 degree VR view).

The sign posted on this decaying military building has its own message about Limits!
Ultimately the limits shown here are of the durability of human efforts to build close to the water, not to mention the effects rising sea levels could have, eroding Sandy Hook, the eastern seaboard of the United States and coastal areas around the world! It's time to re-read Limits To Growth: The 30 Year Update by Meadows, Randers and Meadows.

  1. Please allow me to introduce myself -

    My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
    Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!
    Nothing beside remains. Round the decay,
    Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare,
    The lone and level sands stretch far away.

    Thank you, Brian!
    Fank you Mick 'n' Keef!
    And I mean this most sincerely,
    Thank you Percy!! It's been real!!!
