Comment of the Day

You're right: Some great pics, but that same caption, over and over, is a bit repetitively, unremittingly grim. Believe it or not, World, Detroit is not ALL about burned-out, abandoned shells and unceasing despair. But following the old journalistic credo "if it bleeds, it leads," the awful news always trumps the positive news. I'm starting to understand the term "destruction porn". People really do seem to find some deep, dark pleasure in seeing the nakedly vulnerable old buildings of Detroit, sprawled in an unseemly fashion in their déshabillé. -Frank Lloyd Wrong [Yet Another Detroit Photo Essay with Horrible Title, Captions]
