by Hasan on September 9, 2009 · 12 comments

Have you ever come across old ruins or abandoned places and wondered what memories they hold? Can you picture them during a happier, livelier time, or do you feel a bit melancholy thinking about what’s long since lost? Whether these lonely places strike your curiosity or tug at your heartstrings, you’ll find something to enjoy and ponder in this collection of photos of forgotten places.

But I am envious of the talents of the folks in this collection, who do such beautiful and affecting work.
