Ruins of Detroit by Yves Marchand and Romain Meffre

Jaw-dropping, aching, wistful, and stunning photography from French photographers
Yves Marchland and Romaine Meffree documenting Detroit's decay. These images just
makes you sigh at such a missed opportunity. Such promise. Now, it's almost impossible
to imagine what Detroit must have been like in it's heyday.

I remember about a year ago, driving by the rubble of Texas Stadium in Irving after it's
demolition. The heap of abandoned debris seemed so... lonely and haunted. It's weird
how a building can seem so alive, then, all of the sudden quiet. Feel kinda sad for Detroit.
