One of the crazy things about working at the Bryant Park Project is that we get (got?) to dream. Maybe you were tied to your desk more than you wanted, but you could see the day coming when you'd be able to go out with a camera and a recorder and bring back the amazing story that had been keeping you up at night.

The crazy thing about leaving the Bryant Park Project is that we still have those dreams, the exact same ones.

Today, thanks to Twitter pal @revolution_21, I give you Abandoned Baton Rouge, a loving photo chronicle of what's happening in Louisiana's capital city. It's not pretty. But it is worth losing sleep over.

Check it out:
