To Wander And Explore Lonely Forgotten Places 6,181 People

    I've been to 3 abandoned places.

    They make for great photography and they have amazing history. If anyone knows any cool places in New York and New York City-message me and tell me! I'm always looking.

    The Piano

    In the old abandoned house there was rubbish everywhere, newspapers strewn, cans and stuff.The old stables had horses names still above the stalls "Fleet" "Majesty" and "Apollo"....The fire places wee big enough to stand upright in and the walls had peeling paper from before 1900...

    Urban Exploration

    I love exploring abandoned buildings and towns. There's nothing more fun than hearing the echo of my boots clicking on the ground, reminding me that there is no one else around but me and my camera. It's so peaceful walking around abandoned areas, I always find myself trying to...

    I used to go in an abandoned military station

    closed in the 1940s, its so old that it has grass growing in concrete and roofs, it has tennis and basketball courts, and inside there's all kind of broken stuff like pictures posters, trophies in the floor and all sort of stuff, there are open basements aswell but it was just...

    Abandoned Buildings

    I am enamored with forgotten abandoned buildings. I love sifting through the dilapidated hulks of eras gone by. I love quietly slipping through ruined spaces that were once vibrant with life. I find such beauty in their slow unnoticed decay. They are like ships slowly sinking...

    In the town where my dad lives there's this old

    abandoned school. Whenever my boyfriend comes to visit my dad with me we go inside the school and walk around, checking the place out. It's 2 stories high and it's obvious that a lot of other kids go in there too, from all the broken bottles and stuff lying around. But it's just...

    Lost Worlds Forgotten Secrets

    I have loved old abandoned places for as long as I can remember and I think it stems from two things about me. My love of history and my love of solitude within nature (lets face it most abandoned places are overgrown with trees or whatever). I find very often that my exploration...

    There's a sense of mystery to them.

    I mean, at one time, there was a use for that place. It was brand new, and then something happened, and then it was abandoned. I always like to think about what could have happened there. It makes for some fun story ideas. :D

    Whenever I find myself in an abandoned place

    or structure a desire to become part of it arises. When the silence is comforting I take picture after picture creating maps and seascapes out of paint-peel. When the silence feels threatening I allow that adrenaline to fill me and fuel my expedition. These places always have...

    Abandoned Hospital

    I went to explore an old abandoned hospital today. It was scary but exciting. These buildings always seem to have an eerie, peaceful feel to them, especially in hospitals when it's easy to see what ward belonged to the ill children, etcI always go so quiet when i'm in the...

    The Palm Tree (Back To The Never Never)

    This poem was inspired by a visit to a defunct outback cattle station in the Northen Territories. I stand here lost in time, lonely for so long. The only palm tree amongst gums, and the stone of a ruined cattle station. Once I was loved, in the coolness of the night, tired...

    There's this abandoned "castle" in the woods

    that everyone parties at in the summer. We call it Witches. It's covered in graffiti but still, it's pretty cool. Supposedly witches were burned there (hence the same) so it's haunted. Obviously none of it's true but it does get a little bit spooky if you're there alone.

    And even the abandoned place in my heart.

    I've found that I am finally happy with that sense of loneliness. I see it as a ball of white-hot light that will never leave me and something that I won't get jealous of when I see it with others. I go to bed with it, knowing it can never be taken away. And it brings me peace...

    The desolation of abandoned places is

    incongruously gorgeous. Sometimes the story of the place is interesting, too. One if my favorite places is Salton Sea. Beautiful. Check it out if you haven't heard of it. Go to lostamerica.com/photo-items/the-salton-sea/

    These places are the best.

    Why? Well because its Abandoned no one is around so I love stripping naked and exploring around naked and then I would return to my clothes where I hide so no one knows where it is and I grab out my ***** and bang myself until I scream.

    I feel that abandoned places allow someone to

    go back in time. Maybe see how ppl lived 30 or so years ago. My favorite abandoned places are then ones that it seems people just never came home one day. I love finding old things that people use to use in their daily life.

    I think that abandoned places are

    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...

    Buildings Of The Forgotten.

    I love old abandon buildings, the way they stand oddly alone. They are often right among the busy ever day life getting passed by with nobody giving a second thought as to why or how this happened. You can get into some buildings and escape the reality of life. Drift back to the...

    Abandoned Buildings Freak Me Out And Thrill Me At The Same Time

    They are like taking a step into a different

    time. They tell the story of when they were used and sometimes of all the bad timed since. You can find so many interesting and sometimes beautiful and creepy scenes. The memories of these little adventures will stick with you forever.

    and left there when I was about 22. An old Aunt and cousin were staying there and the house deteriorated in a few short years where we had to have it demolished. Squatters and vandals had broken over the two years it was abandoned and on my visits to my house I was taken aback...
