There's a documentary film being made about Rennies and Ren Faires.
Besides the post thehoodwatch did back on 4/1/09
Didn't someone else posted an abandoned Renaissance Faire.
I went back as far as I could but didn't have time to find it.
Does anyone remember who/when that was?
I'd like to share those posts to the director.
I'm just getting started in photographing various places, and I'm very interested to see if there's anyone in the Cole County area of Missouri who might be willing to be an exploration partner. Please let me know if there is!
Drove by here to see if anything has changed since going here only 8 days before. Apparently a lot has changed...

First time I was in this abandoned mine in march (photos you can see in my blog or in this community). In that first visit I saw majority of interesting places of mine except one most beautiful - Snow Queens Chalet (SQC). SQC is the snow cawe, formed in result of drift collapse. Several dayes ago I returned to this mine specially for the SQC...
The Dieweg cemetery (Brussels) is not used anymore since about 50 years.
Since most of the people that are supposed to maintain the graves and tombs are now dead themselves, nature has taken over the place.
The paths are still maintained, so that it's easy to walk among the graves.
From the dates on the tombs, it seems that most burials took place between 1900 and 1930. That means lots of Jugendstil and Art Déco.
The flora is quite unique: a combination of local plants and whatever was planted on the tombs. This makes that the view is always green, even in winter: lots of ivy and cypress.
An impressive place.
