Awesome... really wish I could view the entire image and not just 1/4 of it while scrolling around...

"Sadly there are half a dozen buildings within 5 miles of my house that look like this"

Perhaps the saddest thing is that these buildings hark back to a day when there were a multitude of independent car makers, with cars being built by workers proud to be at the leading edge of the technological and industrial wave. Even the fact that a number of the buildings built in the 30s and 40s have strong architectural merit reminds us of the confidence that existed at that time.

Bit sad really.

jesus christ - just how big do you think the average FF's computer monitor is, 54 inches?!

Scrolling right just to try to see a picture makes that picture... easy to ignore. Multiply times however many far too over-sized pictures you have there.

Dude...how about reducing the size of those pics for us with limited bandwidth.



The file size is huge, over 2 megs each.

Reducing the dimensions so we can actually see them would be nice too.

For those using Firefox, the Image Zoom add-on is really handy. It lets you blow up or shrink an image as much as you want. I don't know whether IE has anything like that.

Since no one else said it, "Welcome to the forum".

Quite the welcoming committee.

Abandoned railway station in Otinapa, a town in the Sierra Madre, Mexico. A really nice family lives in half of the building (really, in one room of it), the other half is in major disrepair. The fence you can see at the right edge of the picture is built out of old railroad ties.

They had a dog named "House" after the TV show

(sorry about the white border, it's a Shutterfly thing).

This is an old, abandoned farmhouse that I often ride my motorcycle to. I have been photographing it for a year now and I will continue to chronicle its decline into oblivion.
