A post over at Boing Boing about a moldering city of bread caught my eye after I had written a not-particularly-cheerful post about how quickly Mother Nature starts to take back the world in the absence of humans.
Swedish artist Johanna Mårtensson created a cityscape made from baked bread and then photographed it as it decayed. Here's an animated gif that created showing the decay.
