Arbor Day 2022

Anthropogenic Crisis No. 4266 copyright 2021 Douglas Stockdale – Arbor Day is another opportunity to stay in tune with the environmental changes just whizzed by. The initial stated intent of Arbor Day was a day to plant a tree. Regretfully, most of us do not have a place to do this on our property, or at least I do... Continue Reading →

Make it Earth Day every day

Anthropogenic Crisis No. 094656 (Warming Water) copyright 2022 Douglas Stockdale – I had been really pushing the abstraction potential of a coupe of my Warming Water series images and was unsure of how these might read.

Subtle Climate Changes

Anthropogenic Crisis No. 130333 (Warming Water) copyright 2022 Douglas Stockdale - One of the aspects of an adverse Climate Change, as it is occurring now, is that what's changing day to day is so subtle as to really not being recognizable.
