2013 Challenge, Week 13: Entropy

Yes, yes, yes! We’ve shot entropy at least 3 other times, throughout the history of PhotoChallenge.org. But guess what? I LOVE IT!!!

“Imperfections”, by Wolfman-K

One of the past posts I simply defined entropy, with a few bullet points. I think it explained it the best.

  • A measure of the disorder or randomness in a closed system.
  • The tendency for all matter and energy in the universe to evolve toward a state of inert uniformity.
  • Inevitable and steady deterioration of a system or society.
  • Devolution
Just Across The Street

“Just Across The Street”, by Jeremy Brooks

The most commonly seen topics for entropy are examples of things breaking down, or devolution. But, don’t discount simply things displaying disorder or randomness.

About Steve Troletti

I'm a Location Scout, Editorial, Nature, Wildlife and Environmental Photographer based in Malibu, California. I specialize in Nature and Urban Nature photography including Infrared Landscapes. The Bulk of my work takes place in the Los Angeles, California area, Greater Montreal Region, Canada, Switzerland, France and Varese in Northern Italy. Ethical wildlife photography is the main priority and focus of my work. A minimum disturbance of the animals, their habitat and the environment is my top priority. This applies as much to total wilderness areas as it does to urban nature environments. Ongoing education of environmental issues and building awareness for the protection of wildlife and wilderness areas around the world is what drives me to document the beauty that surrounds us.
