Olympic Ruins

Screen Shot 2012 07 30 at 9 18 58 AMThe New York Times’ Lens blog has a post up looking at the work of Jamie McGregor Smith who spend time in Athens, Greece, looking at the remains of the 2004 Olympic venues. “Remains” is the proper word – many of the sites, custom built for the games just eight years ago, are sitting unused and rotting away.

Study the images coming out of the current events – is this what will happen to them? Probably not as London has already stipulated some of the future plans for these sites.

Still, it’s pretty sad …
