Steve Troletti Editorial, Nature and Wildlife Photographer: PICTURE OF THE DAY / PHOTO DU JOUR &emdash; Ruined Ruins - IR

ENTROPY – We’re going to stay away from the physics definition and thermodynamics for this one, although if you can capture that with a camera, such as a meteorite hitting the ground, go for it. 🙂

We’ll concentrate on definition #2 of the Merriam-Webster Dictionary :

2a the degradation of the matter and energy in the universe to an ultimate state of inert uniformity

  • Entropy is the general trend of the universe toward death and disorder. —James R. Newman

b a process of degradation or running down or a trend to disorder

  • The deterioration of copy editing and proof-reading, incidentally, is a token of the cultural entropy that has overtaken us in the postwar years.  —John Simon

Trevor first introduced the ENTROPY Challenge in April 2008 followed by an April 2010 ENTROPY Challenge.

Entropy takes on many definitions within our culture from sciences, discipline to just maintaining order in the world around us. The interpretations for this challenge are really endless.

As usual our old challenges were monthly challenges and even at times, daily challenges. We’re going to conform to our modern take on the challenge and apply ourselves to take one awesome photograph depicting entropy…

Here was my submission for the 2010 Photo Challenge – Entropy : An old haunted theme restaurant that had close its doors due to the instability of the structure. Originally an old trading post for the Hudson Bay Company.

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.
