The photographs in this book were all taken within a circle of one mile radius from our house. The circle is crossed west to east by a line of prominent hills made of glacial till deposited by the great ice sheet that advanced and receded over this part of the North American continent at the end of the last Ice Age.

Divinity School, Highland Heights, Pinnacle Hill, and Cobbs Hill. To the west of the circle is another hill, the present location of Mt. Hope Cemetery, burial place of Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglass, as well as hundreds of thousands of people who were connected in life to the Rochester region. Just north of the center of the circle is Pinnacle Hill, with a wooded crest and crowned with four prominent television and radio towers. These towers can be seen from many locations within the circle and beyond. The eastern side of Pinnacle Hill is occupied by the Hillside Children’s Center, a provider of social services with 170 years of history in the Rochester community. The circle is sliced into sections by five main roads that pass entirely through it: Monroe Avenue, Clinton Avenue, Elmwood Avenue, Highland Avenue, and South Goodman Street. These roads define the various neighborhoods within the circle. There are many different kinds of habitat for humans and other species among the neighborhoods of the circle. Those north of the line of glacial hills are older urban neighborhoods in several varieties. South of the hills are relatively newer neighborhoods with more clearly separated commercial and residential zones. I offer the following selection of photographs as evidence that there is only one circle like ours in the world. I am certain that if you were to take the time to explore your own circle with the same intent, you would find it similarly unique.
