Urban Inspiration

  • Tuesday, January 19, 2010

Sometimes you can find inspiration in the strangest of things. I found mine within the urban sprawl of the Lowcountry -- old abandoned buildings. Some might call it urban decay or urban waste but I have a different name for it... urban-omics. Great word -- I claim it but feel free to use it.
What is urban-omics? It is kind of like recycling, taking something old and finding a new use for it. I am using old dilapidated buildings as my inspiration. At least that is the definition I want Webster to use when they add it to the dictionary. Laugh all you want but if Google can be a verb then urban-omics can be a word.
