Caged like mechanical animals

I took a long walk this afternoon and shot this photo of the bus depot on presidio. I was fascinated by the lines of the fence, the branches of the bush and the rows of the buses intertwined in an organic and industrial stalemate. Tonight i saw the film Supersize Me- about a man who eats mcdonald's 3 meals a day for 30 days as an examination of what the food would do to him. The results are pretty scary as he risks liver failure by the end of the month. It takes over year for him to recover fully, and I've come away with a better understanding of my own philosophy- that food is good in moderation, but overindulgence on any level is harmful.

  1. Very interesting photo with the juxtaposition of nature and city-- yes they do look like mechanical animals! (Rather large ones)
