The Machine Runs on Oil by Photoception The Machine Runs on Oil by Photoception
This is from a study I did last year, 2007, titled "The Machine Runs on Oil."

It focused on the way all of our lives are inherently tied to a dependence on a finite resource, Petroleum. The economic machine in the US, and the world is not designed to be sustainable. We're racing towards the finish line.

Two words: Oil Peak!

You can't guzzle cheap gas anymore, face it America. Plan for the future. Check your tires.

Well, your credit is due, you pushed the shutter. I couldn't have done it without you.
