piratenobeard looking for a photo project for this semester gave me an interesting idea a possible master thesis topic. Researching the ghost towns in Santa Clara County and in the Santa Cruz Mountains. I grew up in a town that almost went the way of New Almaden and Lexington, which merged with its growing neighbors. Campbell residents decided to take action in the 1960’s by building up the downtown, encouraging new businesses to move in, and refusing San Jose’s offer to take over the local government. Or at least this is what my parents told me. I think it would be interesting to compare my hometown to the towns that busted.

Nothing pisses me off more than this. 

And this is why my bosses have encouraged the Harris method. I’m still partial to the metric method
