My god, this is incredible!! It's happening all over the world, but this series makes it so dramatic (and depressing)...

Let's hope things turn around soon!

And thanks for stopping by Ocala DP. That led me to your blog which I hadn't seen before. Just excellent!

I didn't notice that couple in the reflection when I took the shot - but I see what you mean!

Desertson said...

I noticed on the signs it says "To Let" does that mean, "for rent" or "for sale"? Interesting.

Highton-Ridley said...

It's an British/English term - it means for rent but sort of in a commercial sense.
