Todays destination: the abandoned I-10 interchanges in New Orleans East slowly being reclaimed by the swamp/ woods. Back in the 60’s this huge tract of swampy wetlands was slated to be drained and “developed” into a dreamy suburb of New Orleans. Highway exits were built to connect these future neighborhoods to the distant city, but are now going back to nature. I’m happy to report they are loaded with blackberries and mulberries and the surrounded area is now the largest urban wildlife refuge in the US instead of crappy suburbs.
The gorgeous photographs of “petrochemical America” that inspired True Detective.
Oh man, I got to see an exhibit of this work at the High a couple years ago and the book has been on my amazon wishlist since then. It hits that sweet spot of gorgeous, banal, creepy, and familiar. Even if I haven’t been to those exact spots, I’ve been to a spot so similar to it that I recognize them all.

Centaur in a post-apocalyptic world
omg yes o__o
But that means he lived non apocalyptically before :/? How does that even look then xD?
Is it about the downfall of humankind after its genome altering peak, where suddenly people wanted to be half horses xD!?
Just assume it was in an alternative universe in where humans aren’t the only species and centaurs live close to humans, exchanging their cultures
