Urban Post-Mortems


BEWARE: What you're about to see, might chill your very soul!



A Mountain Hotel
Catskills, NY



Just kidding :) Really, come back! I caught this great blog post last week over at JLC STUDIO blog. It featured a skin scrawling, frightfully surreal website called Dark Passage.



School for Girls
Dutchess County, NY



Growing up in a wee little town of 6,000 people, I loved exploring the country and any old abandoned building I stumbled upon. So you can imagine, this website is RIGHT up my alley. I thought I'd share some of my favorite shots!

What I love about these photographs are the histories behind them. They make you wonder about the people who used to live there, what it used to be like when it was full of bustle. It reminds me of when I went to visit Grosse-Ile in Quebec, where we toured all the buildings in which the Irish lived when they first arrived in Canada. It's an extremely haunting place, because just about all the buildings are the originals, filled with artifacts from those who died and survived.

Really interesting photography, and thanks for visiting my blog.

Thank you for sharing. I really think these images are fascinating.
