I came across this "article" on Yahoo! this morning that shows pictures of Detroit's rapid decline. The pictures are stunning so I thought I'd share some of them with you. Take a look if you have time. Of course you have time, you're browsing Oppo!

The pictures were taken on Google Maps in 2009, 2011 and then again in 2013. The differences are truly hard to believe but also extremely fascinating.
