Beauty in The Old, Abandoned, and Rundown.

I have a love for old, rundown, forgotten, falling apart, decaying buildings. The worn wood exposed to decades of the elements, crumbling brick, peeling paint, a buildup of moss and lichen, decayed plants make for beautiful inspiration. The textures, colors make for stunning photographs.

Check out my collection of shots I have taken over the years. Some of these buildings no longer exist. I am happy I was able to capture them on film.

Great pics Steph! And some of them are over a decade old (the pictures are) that's incredible that you got those when you did... you don't know that you'll miss it till it's gone... and I miss all those old buildings that I recognized on here...
