Abandoned medical center

The Rancho Los Amigos Medical Center in Downey, CA has been abandoned since the late '90s--mostly due to lack of funding, from what I've read, although there are apparently rumors about mistreated patients that I haven't been able to really confirm yet. A fun fact I have been able to confirm, however, is that marines who had been using the vacant buildings for whatever reason found some decade-old body parts in the freezer according to an L.A. Times article. Craaazy...

These weren't really shot with the best quality digital camera, but I thought they might be cool-looking enough to post here.

Farmhouses, Central IL

I'm the best friend disorderly_mind mentioned in her previous posts, and I was with her taking pictures of Washburne Trade School in Chicago and the sites in Gary, Indiana. My photos of Washburne will be posted later, I don't have any from Gary because my camera was bad.

But first! We also visited a pair of falling-down farmhouses north of Springfield, IL, near the towns of Athens and Greenview. Unfortunately none of my indoor film pictures came out, and she lost all of her photos of the place when her old laptop died, but I still have three interior and all of the exterior shots I took.

"Every person is a new door to a different world." ~ six degrees of seperation

I wanted to take the time to tell you folks that you are the friendliest community I have posted to. Thanks!!!!!! I am an average person with a new camera for christmas. I basically only know how to point and shoot. Sometime I will get more time to learn the ins and outs of my new camera. You all are supportive and I enjoy reading these posts. I feel so fortunate to have found you guys:)

Swedish abandoned houses.

I just love to walk around and look in old abandoned places, so I guess this is the place for me. And here I dont have to use my legs. Perfect!

Have a couple of photos from typical swedish houses, red with white corners, that have been abandoned.

Middle Tennessee

 Would anyone in the Nashville/Murfreesboro/Middle TN area be up for an adventure maybe when the weather gets warmer?

I don't know a lot of people around here who are into exploring abandoned places. I'd like to change that.

I also don't know of a great number of places around here. I would like to change that as well. Maybe we could even just road trip to one of the more well-known sites.
