Buildings Among Us

The environment in which a person is raised and shaped has an enormous impact on who that person is today. There are obvious reasons for this. A person raised in a village in the middle of the Amazon rainforest is going to have a very different perspective on life than a person who was raised in the middle of downtown New York City. I think the way I have been raised contains a fairly balanced portion of surviving in the wild along with surviving in the city. I grew up hunting and fishing and exploring the countryside but now I have begun to explore the internal parts of the city.

The beautiful skyline of a well adapted culture fueled by economics and business firms.

The time period in which a person is raised also has a large influence on who they have become. I think being raised in the present of today creates a person that is very technologically savvy and has little appreciation for the natural environment still found on the planet. A person raised one hundred years ago would have a much larger appreciation for the element of nature in their lives.
