There are some great pictures to be found here, at The Big Picture: abandoned subdivisions and building sites, landscapes of unused freight containers (#34) and disused newspaper racks (#30), and “Free Weekly Tours of Quality Foreclosed Homes, Prices Won’t Last!!!” (#9, from Las Vegas). There’s something Ed Burtynskyesque about them…

On the topic of Ed Burtynsky: While the image quality is fairly poor when you blow it up to full-screen, Burtynsky’s TED Prize talk has him bearing his environmentalist heart on his sleeve (including his connection to the enviro-optimists at Worldchanging.com). Expect more on his photography and the work of other recent landscape-themed artists coming soon here…
