Mike : EDIT – forgot to add some text

Buildings, construction sites, infrastructure…I’ve always been fascinated by the whole mess. The way everything comes together and how urban landscapes constantly shift and change, the process to me symbolizes the gradual shift from the present, into the future, at least from an aesthetic point of view.

the future

Nicky: A while back, I came across an article about a woman who died. When they went into her home, they quickly realized she was a hoarder. The really disgusting part, however, was that they found human remains amongst the piles of garbage. Turns out, it was the old woman’s mother. The last time anyone remembered seeing her was in 1993. That’s right. Nineteen years ago. That got me to thinking. My kids often joke about putting me in a home – oh, excuse me, I mean a Senior Care Facility. After reading the article and taking a look into my kids’ rooms, I’ve decided to put myself there.

I hope I get one of the rooms with a balcony.

  •  I’m sure we could talk about this subject for hours as it’s of a lot of interest to me. Our region just started to implement some density plans to slow the spread of suburban sprawl. So much farmland has been eaten up, but at the same time new generations don’t want those family farms, so it gets sold off and big box stores pop up instead. It’s the same story all over North America.

    Industrialization sure has its downside.

  • It do.

    One thing that’s occurring down here along the coast is the loss of the family home at the beach. The matriarchs and patriarchs are dying leaving estates (that include mansions) to be divided among their adult children. Usually, there isn’t one who can afford the upkeep and taxes so the properties get sold. So far, the wealthy have purchased these homes. It’s mixed zoning so that could change.

    Yep, it’s a discussion we could have for days.
