despite all efforts
despite all efforts, the agency of map-making, the scarcity of water
Red sandstone exterior of a building in Kirkcaldy that has fallen into disrepair. The outer surface layer is eroding, leaving bare red sandstone.
From a distance, has some resemblance to an aerial view of part of the Earth's surface. Red desert, some splashes of blue. The scarcity of water.
