The Abandoned Chapel ‘The Little White Temple’

Apr. 24th, 2017 | 06:15 pm
posted by: off_the_route in abandonedplaces

It was the most ruined place I visited during that trip but it had some charm despite its poor condition. Trees growing on the roof as well as bare walls suggested that the building is falling into ruin and old wooden pews significally bitten by time let assume that the place had been abandoned for a long time. Despite that, it was still possible to stuck in this place for a while exploring this little abandoned temple and its overgrown surroundings.

Setting up account on Dreamwidth

Due to the recent ToS changes to Live Journal and the anticipated censorship to follow, I am moving my LJ entries and comments to Dreamwidth. The new account is "JJMacCrimmon" there.

I will continue to moderate the "abandonedplaces" community to the best of my ability. I will be closing other communities I own.

After well over a decade this change is bittersweet, but I will not have my thoughts, writings, images and more potentially censored by a government of another country.

The Abandoned Church ‘Sv. Segoš’

Apr. 4th, 2017 | 08:58 pm
posted by: off_the_route in abandonedplaces

It was the first abandoned church in the Czech Republic that I got to know about and the one that made me search even for more of them. Not surprising at all, as the beauty of its interior can make you stay inside for ages. Thus it is worth to open its heavy doors and have a closer look on what is hidden behind.

Abandoned house

Mar. 30th, 2017 | 06:04 pm
posted by: off_the_route in abandonedplaces

It was a small red brick cabin near the road crossing one village in Poland. A brightly green ivy covering on the roof, lack of the doors, as well as holes in the windows, let assume that decay had already moved there and invited to have a look on the painful agony of this once beautiful house. Thus, there was nothing else to do but cross a wild jungle surrounding the building and enter its decaying walls.

The Abandoned Church ‘The Hidden Pearl’

Mar. 20th, 2017 | 05:53 pm
posted by: off_the_route in abandonedplaces

The beauty of decaying churches is a never ending story. So engaging one, that the will to read its next chapter can make you go a long way, no matter how many kilometres it counts. This time the mentioned story takes us to an ordinary village in the Czech Republic, hiding, in contrast, an abandoned church which is so spectacular, that even the ones in use can be jealous of its beauty.

Late summer holidays in Gozo. After a day of discoveries, we came here for the bay and the Calypso cave in the cliff. Because of landslide, the cave was closed but halfway from the beach, we discovered this big abandoned building facing the sea and decided to take a closer look at it.

Abandone chateau Lumiere, France

Mar. 13th, 2017 | 09:40 pm
posted by: alexdoomer2009 in abandonedplaces

For a long time I have not written anything here) Therefore, today in the program a new reportage. Opening of the 2015 season. Perhaps this place is the dream I longed for. This time we did it. It was an abandoned family castle-manor-chateau of a Swiss tycoon, lost in the French wilderness. The place is very picturesque, beautiful and well preserved. Beautiful interiors, a beautiful hall with a luxurious light well and many other interesting things.

Abandoned American theme park in Japan West World Premonition Spaghetti Western

Mar. 11th, 2017 | 08:14 pm
location: Western Village Kinugawa Family Ranch, Japan
mood: cowboy culture
music: Hashisheen Bill Laswell
posted by: pigshitpoet in abandonedplaces

Western Village first opened its doors back in the early 1970s. Originally quite a modest affair known as Kinugawa Family Ranch, the Wild West theme park did well and gradually expanded, hence the name change. Yet despite such success, changing times resulted in changing fortunes, and in 2006 it was forced to close — meaning that the park now sits empty and forlorn by the side of the road. An odd, wholly unexpected sight in a relatively sparsely populated area a few hours north of Tokyo. Is this a premonition of American politics gone wild?
