The world was once a beautiful place, and although there are still some natural beauty’s out there, mankind has done its best to destroy it. Build, build, build, has been the motto for the past 100 years, and now we are left with rubble.
Think about it, just about everywhere you go is built up beyond what is necessary, animals are bred just for slaughter, and in some places, the smog is so heavy that you can barely go outside. The world has gone above and beyond what is needed for survival, and what are we left with? A bunch of unnecessary rubble.
Sometimes every word is superfluous, and these pictures say more than a thousand words.
