the fabulous ruins of detroit

this awesome site features images of many of detroit's once grand, but now abandoned and decaying buildings. i especially like the interior images.

  1. They are amazing graphic images. I have struggled though, with how we romanticize or spiritualize or beatify images that represent failure or poverty or pain. In my western PA hometown, I have seen rows of rusting RR cars with the mountains behind, and thought how beautiful. Then I thought of the sadness of those lives resulting from the failure of the RR business.
