Nice pictures. You did a good job capturing life in some crappy small-town areas, like you can imagine with that cocktail lounge place.

Fantastic job capturing an overwhelming sense of dread and isolation. Very noir-ish.

Excellent thread.

Leaving the rust belt was a very good thing for my life, but there sure is a lot of interesting stuff to photograph there. The gloom in these photos is palpable.

You captured the Great Lakes weather perfectly! Ominous; Much like the economic situation for the last 30 years.

This one depresses me the most:
