As of today, the Simon Dashiell set on my flickr account is the largest.  Yep, that means I posted more pictures!

This is the sort of thing that alternately frightens, upsets and saddens me.

Yes, it's just one city, built largely on the growth of one industry, but the tarnished beauty of the UA Theatre (when it's not reminding of the scene in Congress from Logan's Run) opens a deep well of sadness.  The loss of the house in Brush Park anges me (architecture is one of the most joyous forms of human endeavor).  And the idea that this is something that, given our current economic state and the uncertain changes that face us in th near future, could possibly be repeated MANY times over in more and larger cities, scares the living daylights out of me.

Much as I may not like a number of features that come with cities,  in many ways they are necessary repositories of a great deal of human artistic and constructive endeavor.  The possiblilty that this could all end (or suffer a precipitous decline) is the sort of thing that fuels a great deal of apocalyptic and dystopian thought and art.

There is beauty in emptiness but great sadness, too.
