Laura Brunow Miner compiled a nice photo essay “Infrastructure – The Underpinnings that make Civilization civilized”. Below are some of my favorite shots. See the complete photo essay with background information about each picture and photographer at Pictory.
Formally, infrastructure is the physical and organizational structure that enables society to operate. It allows economies to function, and services and facilities to run smoothly. Personally, infrastructure allows us the illusion that we can insulate ourselves from the forces of nature. Look, appreciate, and enjoy, but please don’t take any of these structures for granted.
