RED BUD
FADES AWAY
 
The town of Red Bud
was once a booming agricultural city,
in the heart of Southern Illinois.

Main Street, Town Hall, Hotel, Bank,
Jail, Mercantile, Dry Goods, Blacksmith,
surrounded by working farms and families.

But that was "turn of the century."

Today, main street is empty; stores have
moved to the nearby malls;
barns slowly fall down.

It's sad.
And it's beautiful.

  2. Un lugar muy interesante para hacer fotos. Cuando el trabajo escasee en las ciudades a causa de los robots, muchos volverán a la vida en el campo.
