Faces and Places – the Recession

I found this today and thought some of you would find it interesting.  It’s a photojournal by Michael S. Williamson.  “A Washington Post photojournalist has spent year the year traveling the country, meeting people whose lives have been altered by the flattened economy.”

On Recession Road.

Nope, we’re not in it 🙂

As an archaeologist photo #33, the unfinished condo project, really caught my eye.  Modern ruins.  Very apt image for lives.

    I made a video of my own neighborhood. Here it is:

    People think I make the economy worse than what I think it seems. Well, proof is in the photo. I have to pass through this way every week or so. Each and every time, I see more and more decay, boarded up homes, closed businesses. But, the politicians keep putting up their voting signs, right in the middle of all the chaos.

    Sure, I’ll vote for you. NOT!

    Sorry that it’s totally unrelated to the post!
