Distraction: The Ruins of Detroit

I visited the Motor City once for a wedding years ago... the bride a vision in white against the green lawn of a sprawling estate nestled far from the city.  It was a lovely setting but it was a complete contrast to the neglected buildings of downtown Detroit which were hard to ignore...grand structures that stood abandoned and crumbing... sadly neglected ruins of a once great American city.  
Needless to say, I never went back.
From The Ruins of Detroit by Yves Marchand & Romain Meffre.
Incredible....or, rather, incroyable.
From here.
