In this modern era, our environment rarely consists of forests, rolling plains, or plentiful foliage. Even in Ann Arbor, our environment is mostly overwhelming buildings, sidewalks, pavement, and a few trees and some grass here and there. My observation towards our environment is the number of cars that grace our prescence. Many of us may not notice these noisy, busy machines flowing through our streets because they are just part of our naturalcity environment. Cars and the traffic they cause emulate the rivers that use to outline our land. As they slowly drive down State Street, I can't help but imagine water flowing. I feel as though those that drive cars are unaware of their autmobile's presence in the backdrop of our environment and those on the street can tune them our of their line of sight. I began to realize cars more as I was walking through Central Campus looking for an environmental condition. It hit me that cars were our modern condition. Within our forests of buildings and our sidewalks of grass, dirt, and foliage, cars are like our water sources. They pool together in parking lots like lakes and wind around our buildings like streams and rivers.
