oddbyte: Speaking of Dead Cities

I just read about this amazing website (via the New York Times and Treehugger).  A web developer and amateur photographer in Detroit has been shooting the empty and deteriorating old houses since the 1990s with his Hasselblad.  It's heart-breaking to see some of these noble and gorgeous old houses just abandoned to the ravages of time. 

Buy a print for $35 and a portion of the proceeds will be do
nated to Habitat for Humanity.  It's your last chance to see these amazing old dames before they crumble to dust or are razed to the ground.
