Hipstamatic Pics of Old Buildings

Oklahoma is full of once booming towns that are slowly wasting away. Farming, oil, and manufacturing once supported these little communities. Some that are near larger cities are hanging on, but many more have an almost ghost town feel. The local Wal-Mart is often the only business doing very well although a handful of local businesses usually can scrape by.

There's an eery beauty to the buildings left behind to slowly crumble in the wake of a dying economy. When I am at my most cynical I often wonder if much of America will look like this if our jobs continue to move overseas, oil peaks and declines, and agriculture is in the hands of increasingly larger consolidated corporations.
