When towns die, they become what they were before: nature
I am fascinated when nature reclaims something mankind built. The more complex the structure, the more fascinating its decomposition. It takes time: nature is patient. But she is also quick, always looking for the opportunity to get past our walls and break down what we have tried to so hard to build.
A week ago I took two days and visited ghost towns all over Ohio. Look at what happens when we stop denying nature her due.
