The Rustbelt


Just one more picture from my Ohio trip. I mentioned the rustbelt in my previous post. Here's a "rusty" picture from Hamilton, Ohio. Hamilton is a perfect example of an Ohio rustbelt town; once a prosperous industrial city (mostly papermills), it is now for the most part, just another sad, decaying Ohio town. I have no idea what purpose all the brightly colored barrels had in their "real" life, but I found their contrast with the rusty old contents of this scrapyard interesting. Kind of a "Carnival of Junk", a bright spot amidst the urban decay.
