A week ago this was a magnificent little forest. So, I’m wondering, what’s the morality difference between clear cutting the Amazon forest for agricultural development and clear cutting Alabama forests for commercial development?
Are Alabama forests less of a carbon sink than the forests of the Amazon? Why will clear cutting Alabama forests not contribute to climate change, but clear cutting in the Amazon will? Do Alabama forests not produce oxygen for the planets creatures to breath? I’m also wondering about the impact the loss of wildlife habitat will have on the forest’s creatures: birds, squirrels, deer, armadillos, rabbits, etc.

He’s the son of a Baptist minister, and a nurse mother. He’s a veteran of the U.S. Army having served in Germany during the Cold War. He’s the father of a beautiful daughter, and he’s a soon-to-be grandfather. He’s a genuinely nice man and my friend.
Throughout most of my career, I took pictures of products, processes and places, but I began this job shooting weddings and portraits. Every now and again I feel the compulsion to create photographs of people. Darrin was an available and agreeable subject. I hope my portrait of him does justice.
