This picture shows a dilapidated street, that contains trash strewn across it. The picture illustrates a poor community that seems to be on the fringe of a city, due to the tall building in the background. The poor living conditions can not be healthy for the citizens of this community. Since Atlanta is a city with poor neighborhoods, like any other major city, this picture may be representative of conditions that can be found in the city.
Why this Source?
I chose this source because it provides a street level view from a poor street. It provides a visual of poor living conditions that cannot be received from words.
A flaw this picture has is that it only provides a visual of a street, and not other aspects of the exterior environment.
How is it related?
This picture can be related to the annotated bibliographies I did on the impact of the built environment on health.
