Cleaning out some saved sites, so I apologize if any of these are ones you’ve seen before!
I love abandoned places. Old falling-down houses, bricked-off subway stations, hotels that were never finished, power plants left to rot, empty hospitals and institutions. There’s just something so lonely, so stark, such a sense of death and decay (and maybe a little horror movie) to most of them. Here are a few that I’ve been saving to share…
I would be hard-pressed to choose a favorite photo from the Ruins of Gary, Indiana.
This abandoned theme park in New Orleans makes me think of Something Wicked This Way Comes (yes, even though that was a traveling circus).
An abandoned power station from the 1940s makes me think of all kinds of post-Apocalypse scenarios.
This 50-story building in Bangkok was never finished.
After touring seven abandoned breweries, yes; I would want a beer.
A Japanese pop-singer’s abandoned house and belongings.
More story than photos, but still good – Into the Tunnels of NYC.
