The Boston Globe's Big Picture feature recently ran a hypnotic series of ariel photos that depict the housing collaplse in South Florida. The photo team states:
Many homes there are empty and have been for years. Huge developments sit partially completed among densely built up neighborhoods and swampland. A guest stated that there were "enough housing lots in Charlotte County to last for more than 100 years."
For another bird's eye glimpse of the human landscape, I recommend Emmet Gowin's darkly beautiful pictures of battlefields, mine pits, and atomic test sites.
