Piggybacking nicely on the recent post I did on suburban sprawl as captured by photographer Stephen Zirwes, Boston.com’s Big Picture is showcasing a wonderful collection of google-earth landscapes of SW Florida. The shapes created by these subdivisions, some dense, others mere ghost towns, are fascinating. Some are rigid and symmetrical, stripping the earth of any sense of natural composition, while others tend to mimic their surroundings in curious, sanitized reductions. Pretty amazing.
