Descriptive Prompt #4: Gone

I really enjoy post-apocalyptic stories. Sometimes, they’re overdone. Man-eating mutants seem to be a staple of the genre, with the remaining bits of humanity clinging to whatever livelihoods they can. There are lots of great video games with this setting, a fair number of decent movies, and maybe a handful of books that pull it off. My current work in progress is a distant post-modern world somewhat like this.

The prompt picture today evoked this kind of post-civilization feeling. Old human structures peek through the shroud of nature that’s begun to overtake them. Is this an isolated place, or might this have been a busy place at some point in the past? Where is everybody?
