So I took a little break from jockeying my keyboard and when I returned, I was all set to follow the spam links that were posted here :D Where did they go? Must be a conspiracy afoot-that's it! :D

Anyhow, thanks/gracias/spasibo to whoever removed that post. Here's an abandoned Samoan church I found while roaming around Burien, Washington. Nothing spectacular but definitely not canned luncheon meat :D

Here we go!Collapse )

As I'd mentioned in another post, I recently found a lot of old photos I thought I'd lost for good. This series is part of what I recovered. Frankly, I am too lazy to see if I posted it here in the past but if I did, it was at least 10 years ago so please forgive me for a repost. I just think it is a cool building that is worth sharing.

It is an old power station in Utica NY which has been gone for quite a few years. These were taken in either '04 or '05.

Tubs opened in Seattle's University District in the early 1980's. It was a place where one could rent a hot tub or sauna by the hour. I am not sure when it closed but for at least 7 years, the abandoned icon was a mecca for graffiti artists.

Tubs was demolished in 2014 to make way for a mixed-use apartment building.

The first two photos were taken in 2010 from a car as I made my first visit to the U District. I took the others in 2011.

English tranz

Территория бывшего крупнейшего завода Москвы уже более, чем на половину очищена от старых цехов, в северной части возведен Ледовый дворец, вся центральная часть в глубоких котлованах, где в настоящее время формируются фундаменты будухих жилых кварталов, и лишь около десятка построек до сих пор остаются нетронутыми, дожидаясь либо сноса, либо реставрации.
Предлагаю вам посмотреть, как выглядит легендарный ЗИЛ сейчас. С публикации предыдущего поста, все что мы тогда посетили уже демонтировали. В этот раз мы побываем в Высотном складе, заводском бомбоубежище на 3000 человек и заглянем в действующий Инженерный корпус. Приятного просмотра!
Для удобства пост поделен на 3 под-ката:
Высотный склад +34 фотоCollapse )

I happened to see this article on Poveglia. The article itself is from May 14, 2010, but features lovely pictures of the buildings on the island.


If someone else has already posted this link, please excuse me.

Mercer Slough

Despite the strong winds and intermittent rain, I decided to take a quick bus ride to the Mercer Slough Wetland in Bellevue, Washington today to get a few photos of an abandoned building in the swamp.

Mercer Slough is the largest of Lake Washington’s remaining fresh water wetlands and is one of Bellevue’s largest parks. It has over 7 miles of trails, many of which are boardwalks through the swamp. It is a good place to explore when the weather is more cooperative. For today, I limited my explorations to this recon and regarding wildlife, saw only crows and mallards.

This boiler house was part of a flower bulb nursery which was started in the early 20th century. I'm not sure how long it lasted before the swamp took over.

I recently found a lot of my old photos that I thought were lost forever. I think I may have shared some of them here but that was like 10 years ago *lol* They bring back some good memories so I think they might be worth sharing anew.

This set was taken in Rome NY; the structure was once the office of an oil company. When I was a kid, there were large storage tanks next to the office but they were gone by the time I returned for these shots.

Photos hereCollapse )

Priest House

In Parkhomovka near the Temple of cover Presvjatoj of the Virgin is House of the priest. Looking at this with horror we begin to understand that the temple would now be in the same condition. In 1987 Svetoslav Roerich in USSR celebrates Indian culture, afraid to be recalled by Moscow to the COMMUNIST PARTY CENTRAL COMMITTEE, quickly assembled restorers from all over Ukraine. Yet did not restore the temple.

At a time when the House of the priest began to repair the roof, it became clear that Gorbačev with Svyatoslav Roerich in Parhomivka would not come around. It happened at a time when the Church was restored, whereas the restoration of the House of the priest stopped halfway. Boards for the roof over the porch were already added, but not cut or set. Since then, it has been nearly three decades, and boards and still not completed.
