I’ve always been interested in places that were something once. In San Francisco a friend of mine took me to a waterfront area chock-a-block with old warehouses, classically-detailed buildings filled with mysterious and massive electrical equipment, and huge fenced-off areas filled with rusting stuff. What a jackpot!
I found a guy online who is a true master of photography and old places. At his site, you’ll find exquisite buildings that have been transformed by weather and neglect into other-worldly echo chambers, where the cacophony of ghosts is deafening. Think I’m being dramatic? Check this one out:

If you’ve played Half-Life 2 you’ll fee at home here. Old European houses fallen into disuse? Check! Heavy industry? Check! Mineshafts? Check! Put on some wellies, light your headlamp, and start wading through this site.
