The photograph illustrates how dependent we are on the environment around us. Here, along the waterfront in Seattle, water is used for transporting people and goods, oceans are used to access raw materials and there is the aesthetic appeal of ‘the sea’. All of this is not without hazards, from the water itself and from other features, such as the volcano looming in the background.
