Beach House

I held these photos back from my picspam yesterday, mainly because I think that particular picspam would have become just a tad too long. A few months ago I added Ghost Town to the list of abandoned places I've broken into. It's a town in Connecticut that was abandoned in the mid-90's when the bridge connecting the peninsula to the mainland burnt. The only way to get to the town is a narrow strip of land barely big enough for a road. The houses are set to be razed as the peninsula is being turned into some sort of bird sanctuary. Thankfully we managed to see the place before it all disappears. We only managed to cover a fraction of it. There's so much there but as most people discover soon after picking up a camera - you're limited by the available light and when the sun started going down it was time to leave.

These are stunning. You have amazing picture skills, from this spam and the last. Like. I'm blown away.
There is so much history in that abandoned town...it's crazy to think about.

I'm glad you like them! That town was so gorgeous in it's decay that it was hard to get a bad shot. Thank so much!

Guh. I have so much love for pics of urban decay. These are gorgeous. You really do have a spectacular eye. If you were able to manage it with all the travelling, I'd strongly encourage you to try and do showings of your work.

It's funny how beautiful things become when they're left to their own devices and nature takes over. I'm so glad you liked them. You're totally making me blush though!
