They Won't Come by slephoto They Won't Come by slephoto
The title's a play on the famous quote from "Field of Dreams," "If you build it, they will come."

The neighborhood we're currently living in was a swamp just outside the city limits that was bought cheap & built up even more cheaply at the tail end of the housing bubble. It's half-abandoned, with "for sale" signs dotting the yards of places not filled with folks like us who needed cheap rentals.

Here & there you can see evidence of where more was planned until it was all just abruptly dropped. This's a multi-lot section that's being reclaimed by nature. In the foreground's a stack of roofing tiles that were dropped off and never touched. They're rotting away bit by bit. In the back you can see a mount of dirt where a foundation was being cleared, and just behind that pipes sticking up where a space was cleared & pipes laid but no foundation was ever poured.

Some days it seems like the rest of the place is rotting away, just like this lot, only slower.
