Railway Sheds

I'm sure they have an official name, probably some phrase containing the word "service", but to me they're just "sheds" or "cubes". You see them randomly dropped along the sides of the line. I'm sure they have numerous purposes, but this one seems to have outlived its usefulness.

This bundle of rusting decay been "put out to pasture" in the parking lot of Oakville Station.

Destruction rather than decay

This is a steel-reinforced concrete car park in Liverpool, built post-war after bomb damage had removed the previous buildings on the site. I caught it as the demolition team were taking a break at the weekend. The things that look like spaghetti are the steel rods in the concrete.

The American Empire is only temporary.

English Translation of "Koyaanisqatsi":
ko. yaa. nis. katsi [from the hopi language],
n. 1 crazy life. 2. life in turmoil.
3. life disintegrating. 4. life out of balance.
5. a state of life that calls for another way of living.

This brand new community is for art, ideas, and writing about the end of the American empire-- That is not to say you need to "want" it to end to join—but, rather you see that things are in some ways spinning out of control—

Lost Camera

I really hope this isn't some urban myth / hoax type thing, but someone posted this url in an IRC chat about a Lost Camera. They extracted some nice photos from it which strike me as very 'Urban Decay' type photos.

Thought I'd post it here so people can see the pictures and who knows, might be their camera..

I know I'd hate to lose mine.
