Theme Thursday: Country

Moving On
(Boardwalk Trumps Mediterranean Ave...so to speak)


Nothing says "America" like the corporations overtaking our country.  This shot, taken in Atlantic City, by my husband Cole Scott, exemplifies the state our country is in; what the middle and lower classes are reduced to and by what.

Hi! C.G...
If a picture was worth a thousand words...
This picture surely sums up that saying...The rich get richer...The poor get poorer and the middle class just get...
Thanks, for sharing the beautiful [image, but the subject matter is sad] Cole Scott photograph.

Nice how the lighter-toned top of the photo looks like a guillotine blade, about to fall!

Wow! This photo is amazing and fills me with questions. I half expected to see Susan Sarandon in one of the windows "cleaning up" after a work shift. If you didn't see the movie, what I just said probably makes no sense. Anyway, I love the photo!

Wow that's pretty powerful? We have an enormous office in the light industrial park behind me but it's been planted and is slowly disappearing among the flora. This is such a weird photograph. I don't think little homes like that would be permitted to stay over here.

Fabulous photo... love the contrasts expressed. I kind of picked up on the gillotine appearance as well. And that's about how some are being treated by our society, isn't it?
