LFG hug

A little abandoned house in the town of Vancouver Washington

Hello and greetings one and all. I happened across this journal by chance and fell in love with it. Here I thought I was the only one who had an appreciative side for abandoned buildings. I thought I was one of those weirdos who always felt empathic towards empty buildings abandoned by whatever owner that decided it was time to split without a word or as much as a goodbye.

The house below is not even a block from my apartment, so I meandered down today and took a few pics. Sorry for the lack of cool photos, I'm not a very good photographer, that and I had my children with me, so I didn't dare get too close. I'll try and get inside sometime when I have someone to watch my boys and another adult with me so I can take better photos of the inside.

Pics were taken with a Olympus Camedia Digital Camera D-395. Not a bad little camera. :)

That's all I have for now, thanks for letting me post and feel free to critique and give me some pointers for better photos.

(no subject)

These are pictures of the xanadu: house of the future. It was abandoned in 1996.. I am sorry these pictures aren't very clear, it was late and I wasn't even expected to go inside. But here a link to a great website if you are interested in seeing better photos:
this place.. it really is a treasure amongst abandoned places!! :) I am so inspired to start urban exploration.. there are so many crazy abandoned themed places in orlando.

even more San Haven

These are most of the rest of my pictures of the refectory at the San Haven TB Sanitorium in North Dakota. At first I was hoping "refectory" meant something cool like "place where they incinerate the bodies" but I looked it up and it actually means "place where meals are served." Oh well, its very pretty, especially inside, so click on the cut link and see the pretty colors :) Especially in the main room (my favorite of all the rooms I explored that day)
