How long before Earth erases all traces of Homo sapiens?

I posted this on the 2nd of January 2021. It’s a photo that I took and that got me thinking. It’s difficult for many to imagine the Earth without us human primates but relatively speaking Homo sapiens haven’t been around for that long in geological time and even so in this form of extreme use and destruction of the planet’s resources and life support systems.

2nd January 2021

Finding the remains of other human species is reasonably rare and of other species that have come and gone. H. sapiens have scarred the planet far more deeply than others so it would presumably take a lot longer to bury all trace or most of the traces of our existence should we by dumb enough to aid ourselves in going extinct. If it happened tomorrow imagine intelligent aliens arriving one hundred years from now or a thousand, ten thousand or one hundred thousand. Would any of what we have done be left poking out of the surface? I took this photo in the overgrown cemetery at Brompton in London near the Chelsea football stadium. You can see how quickly the plants, then bushes and then trees take over the untended graves. The arch in the picture would take longer but eventually plant life would gain a hold in small crevices and eventually it would come tumbling down. We forget that we exist on a dynamic changing planet and we often ignore that we are here because of the way it works. Currently we are doing our best to break it and this may well indeed lead to our extinction if we are not too careful. We must therefore as a species learn to tread more carefully upon it.

Ferris wheel, Winter Wonderland 44, Hyde Park, London

The ferris wheel lights up the sky.

If I remember correctly it was cold, very cold for me and my fingers had trouble with the camera as they get numb in the winter. My other recollection of different Winter Wonderlands in Hyde Park is that it often rains in December and despite the wooden boarding put down, that it often turns into a bog with mud coming up in some places between the boards.

I’ve never got the hang of taking photos outside of the daylight hours and never got round to reading about how to do it. Something that I still need to do because nighttime can provide a source of excellent images. 10th December 2013.

Still laughing, Winter Wonderland 40, Hyde Park, London

The man I managed to capture in focus in this picture was still laughing so for him paying to get whirled about was worth it.
