Urban decay is found in all cities. When a urban flâneur views or photographs abandoned or derelict buildings, it is not a view of a building, observed as a meaningless object, as a structure that should be considered as a blemish on the urban landscape or as a location for a new structure. S(he views the underlying text of the structure and marvels at the serendipity of its beauty.
While rambling around the Internet, I found some interesting websites, some having exquisite photographs of urban decay. In this blog entry, I decided to concentrate on those blog/web sites related to Detroit-the ‘poster child of urban decay.’ In the future, I will feature other sites with photographs of urban decay.
