There's something hauntingly intriguing about post apocalyptic imagery. Worth1000 has a Photoshop contest to make pictures of the future ruins of today's buildings. Oh, of course we don't want that to happen. But the builders of the empires of the past probably didn't imagine either that one day their mighty monuments would just be piles of stone sticking out of the ground somewhere. Puts things into perspective. Things change. Societal structures rise and fall.
