I couldn’t photograph all of the interventions as some of the bus stops where too crowded to get a good shot. I had planned to return the next day (Saturday) to re-shoot some of the night shots and take pictures of the interventions I’d missed but by the time I set out, around 11:00, skinny models in expensive clothes were back in their rightful places. Based on my unscientific guesstimate, the interventions were in place less than 24 hours.

 

*But really, all of this hubbub about the environment is unnecessary, “As the [Earth, a] product of infinitely wise design, omnipotent creation, and faithful sustaining (Genesis 1:1–31; 8:21–22) …is robust, resilient, self-regulating, and self-correcting. Although Earth and its subsystems, including the climate system, are susceptible to some damage by ignorant or malicious human action, God’s wise design and faithful sustaining make these natural systems more likely – as confirmed by widespread scientific observation – to respond in ways that suppress and correct that damage than magnify it catastrophically.”
