Down On The Farm . . . In Downtown Detroit, MI, USA

Many of these large old Detroit homes look like farm houses to me, especially after all the paint has peeled from the boards leaving only the gray weathered planks. This one was next to a field where several house lots had been razed and grown over by weeds, a typical setting on the residential streets of this poverty-stricken city with one of the highest abandonment rates in the world.
