Rathbone, John Paul. Colombia tries to bridge the gap between rich and poor. Image
This is an image from an article by John Paul Rathbone. The picture shows the stark difference between an extravagant hotel and some slums in Colombia. The two areas are connected together, yet the environments seem like they are in completely different areas.
The image allows a comparison to be made to modern cities such as Atlanta. Evidence in the picture can be compared to how modern cities are fringed by less than glamorous neighborhoods. For example, driving to Atlanta through roads other than the freeway shows a view that is not available from the freeway. Driving through these other roads would give a view of run down houses and buildings in various states of disrepair.
I chose this picture to illustrate how many modern cities are in the same situation. I personally see this glaring difference between the cities and the neighborhoods on the fringe. A flaw this image may have is the fact that it was probably taken a couple of years ago, and there is a chance that the area has changed. It illustrates what other articles I did my annotated bibliographies on talked about.
