Baltimore's people of the woods: Inside the hidden homeless camps made of milk crates, wooden doors and tarps on the outskirts of town

    Photographer Ben Marcin's series 'The Camps' captures makeshift settlements near railway lines, gas stations, Walmarts and bridges
    He said many of Baltimore's homeless feel safer in the woods than in shelters
    While most homes are made from tarps, some more elaborate constructions use milk crates and wooden doors

A sheet of plastic laid over a clothesline. A mini-fortress of milk crates stacked under a tree. A thin mattress on a flimsy crate lying in a dark tunnel.

On the edge of Baltimore's woodlands, dozens of the city's transients live in makeshift homes which they consider safer than homeless shelters.

Photographer Ben Marcin has captured some of the shanties in his thought-provoking photo essay, 'The Camps', documenting the struggle, loneliness and ingenuity of Maryland's people of the woods.

Welcome to Obammyville.........
Probably to some extent.

But historically about 2/3 of the "homeless" are adicts/alcoholics and or mentally ill.

You are entitled to your own ideas, whether Obama drove somebody to drink, or crazy.

After looking at the photos I tend to agree with Matt Drudges headline. "Obamaville".
It looks like families not the single homeless person or mentally ill person from skid row.





We are sadly past the soup line photos because there are no soup lines because Obama would not do that and admit to what he created.

When does the Republican Party, put in the majority by the Tea Party, plan to honor its commitment to halt the growth of the Federal monolith and bring the budget back into balance"?
