I love the idea of abandoned buildings. It’s always so intriguing to think about how something that took so much time and effort to create ended up left behind and in disrepair. I once found a house on a Sea Cliff in Northern California that was just empty, no one there doors open, furniture gone. It had this beautiful view and was probably sitting on a very valuable piece of land but from the looks of things no one had been there in about 20 years. Sort of creepy but amazing at the same time. When I lived in Sacramento I was able to find my way into the old locomotive works where they designed trains. I brought my Lomo, when I get around to scanning those slides in I will post them.
For the time being here are some interesting shots from an abandoned Paper Mill in the UK via maraid complete with awesome 80′s-era industrial computers and corporate art. Click any of the pics above to see more. There’s also a Flickr Pool dedicated to abandoned places.
