There is a tendency, I believe, to think of the term "global diversity" in
grand, large-scale scenes.
I would posit, however, that there is something to be said for a "global
micro-diversity" which considers the small intricacies that make up the
world around us. These details are still necessary, still important, still a global
connectedness - but on a smaller, more intimate scale.
These images are extreme close-ups (macros) of the wall of desert slot canyon.
Seen from a distance, the wall is certainly beautiful and awe-inspiring.
However, when you get up close to it, it's striking to me to think that
thousands of years of water, wind, and sand created these finely-nuanced
patterns of line, light, and color. It reminds me of how diversity - especially
global diversity - is both very big and yet very small.
