Abandoned.

Growing up in Hawaii, I remember playing in an overgrown backyard at a friend's house and discovering, much to my amazement, a cave tucked away among the weeds on the hillside. In it, we found helmets, canteens, discarded papers - war-time relics from decades ago - and I was spellbound to be in the presence of objects that seemed to belong to ghosts. This round-up of abandoned locations around the world reminds me of that moment.

  1. I've seen these pictures going around a few times, but I can never get enough of them-so incredible!! I have an obsession with abandoned places, too, and when I was studying photography they were always my projects.

  3. So sad and beautiful and haunting all at the same time. Have you seen the round up that circulated of Detroit a few years ago? Here's a post I did on it, in case you're so inclined: http://leanerbythelake.com/detroit-wild-city/

  5. I love abandoned houses. I think it's the writer in me, being able to make up stories about what might have happened in those houses.

  7. I find abandoned things so sad and so beautiful all at the same time. Their stories are always far more interesting (to me, anyways).
