    Attached is another picture of the abandoned

    building I posted about a couple weeks ago. After asking around and getting other opinions, I think it may have been a school in the late 1800's. I am sad that the land it's on is for sale. There was something else that was next to it that seemed to be connected to it somehow...

    Abondoned House W.Australia

    I found this house a while back, in the western Australian rural areas maybe 6hours from 'civilisation' as they say, it was as if the person died and the place was forgotten and left as a time capsule. I came across a house left as is, in tact, furniture and all. It looked like...

    I live in a fairly old town,

    and being that I'm new there, I don't know many of the stories behind the abandoned buildings. I must admit that they fascinate me. I think, "If these walls could talk, what stories would they tell?

    such as gasoline stations, parking spaces, and car dealerships. I like to see the vegetation grow back into the concrete and see traces of erosion.

    My favorite place to hang out is in this one

    empty car garage that's down the street from my dorm. It's so peaceful when you go to the top and look out at the view, that is if you're stealthy enough to sneak past the guard ^.^
