I especially like the second last pic. a mix of the old and the new. Those old cooling towers? and underneath the lil tiny modern a/c units.
Those of us outside the US have had a lifetime of "TV" United States that only shows up what Directors want to show us.
I love pics of suburbs, houses, shops etc. Whenever I travel I always do a day trip of the big city, e.g. Paris, London then head for the suburbs to get the real feel of the joint.
Honestly I have had the best times in the smallest most out of the way places, that even applies to where I live.
