Urban Prairies

I came across a term today I've never heard before. Urban Prairie.

It sounds like a peaceful setting, but in fact it's used to describe cities or neighborhoods which have been abandoned due to the economic downturn. Lots and homes which have been mowed down and overrun with weeds and various vegetation. It generally refers to Detroit but could be other cities as well.

It's truly difficult to fathom that this is a picture represents the growing state of cities and towns of one the wealthiest countries on the planet.

Happy New Year! 2010

Happy New Year everyone. Hope 2010 brings you lots of health and happiness.

Wallace and Family.
