I can't shift these images from my mind. Two particular sets of recently-linked-to photographs which, although very different, seem connected in some way. They are both bystanders to an entwining of natural processes and human engineering. And both sets of images are sublime, but in the original fearful, awe-inspiring sense of the word.
First, the first six or seven photographs of Chinese agriculture in Guangxi province, linked to via BLDGBLOG.
Secondly, Edward Burtynsky's Shipbreaking images, mainly taken in Chittagong, Bangladesh.
