The Frozen in Time Ruins of Old Detroit (Photos)

Jan 5 2012

Detroit played a significant part in America's history of entrepreneurship and industrialization - it is a home to many great giants such as Ford. It became known as the cradle of mass-production.

We believe that Detroit's old landmarks are no less worthy of historical mention than the Coliseum of Rome or the Pyramids of Egypt. This splendid collaboration of photography is done by Yves Marchand and Romain Meffre, you can visit their website here.

There are many uninhabited islands around Japan, this one is a bit different - it was once a very busy and a heavily populated island. Now nothing remains but a ghost town. Look at some of these pictures to get a feel of this eerie place.
