    thanks for posting

    Thank you all for the links, it has been - pardon the expression- a visual orgy of sorts. I love industrial pics, I don't why. Waylon, your collection is fantastic, I found several to be absolutaly breathtaking ( and I mean that in a good way and not the Sienfield way ) I hope you do more and share them with us. Thanks again.

    Just put a new industrial gallery online. The factories aren't decaying THAT much, but I figure the link fits best in this thread anyway.

    Another interesting link for Post-Apocalyptic references :

    Chernobyl in pictures

    Someone visited the radioactive zones in Chernobyl and took photos.

    more chernobyl

    I am facinated by Chernobyl and the region around it. I've been closely following (and eagerly awaiting) a game coming out of Russia called "Stalker: Oblivion Lost" ...it's set inside "the zone" around Chernobyl, and the team went inside the zone to get pictures for textures and map the layout of the cities. I don't have any idea about the gameplay but the graphics look stellar. Here's a link with some EXCELLENT photos of the region...check it out if you're interested!

    http://www.gsc-game.com/index.php?t=...press_rel&ss=6

    here's a link to the game's home page:

    http://www.stalker-game.com

    Enjoy!

    Post destruction/creation...

    this was a church i photographed in sicily... it's in a town called "Santa Margherita."

    the town was hit by an earthquake. which literally ripped right through the center of this cathedral....

    they decided to clean out the rubble and enclose the other half in glass... it was very beautiful to see in the midst of all the other destroyed buildings in town...

    decaying homes, buildings, and factories

    "and on the eigth day, God awoke and decided that men needed to argue profusely with one another, and thus behold, internet web forums came into being..."

I'll be here half the night thanx to YOU, man !! (just kiddin ).

    This are screen shots from the stalker game. Easier to look through then on the stalker website, and it might actually have more.

    This site has tons of fantastic photographs of just this sort of thing.

    The guy includes a lot of very interesting stories with most of the sites, too.

I wonder if there is any thread about Shanghai and those kind of chinatown type of things with cool temple lanterns and so on, nothing much is cooler than asian culture it is so picturesque in everyway including China, Japan and Thailand... any other countries ???? I think Ill have to open one of that in case there isnt one yet 8)

    In the vein of abandoned buildings and references, I would like to suggest this site:

    http://www.tueam.com/flickr.html

    TUEAM ("Toronto Urban Exploration and Adventure Meetup") has a wonderful photography exhibit, with new images added all the time. The photos they take can be of pretty much anything, but the majority follow the theme of abandoned buildings, factories, decay, etc.

    ..Wow my first post.. this ends my lurker status forever.. what shall become of me now?!

    Smile

    Time for some new sites!
    Here are some GREAT sites for "urban exploration" and all that is abandoned and/or dilapidated!

    Some of these have more than just homes/buildings/factories so make sure you poke around. ENJOY!
